You've seen the tweets by now. The notoriously-funny @ElBloombito mocking the poor Spanish-speaking skills of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The parody Twitter account, which has over 68,000 followers, amassed quite the following in recent months for its exaggerated interpretation of Bloomberg's comments from city events and news conferences. And after much public ridicule, it seems Bloomberg is going back to school. As Page Six reports:
We’re told that after repeated outings of his heavily American-accented Spanish during storm press conferences—ridiculed on Twitter feed @ElBloombito—and twisting the names of dignitaries during the Queen Sofía Spanish Institute event last Thursday at the Waldorf-Astoria, the mayor told the night’s host, Oscar de la Renta, that he’ll be taking the Institute’s Spanish language classes.
