When my 7th grader came home from school asking about soap operas, I had to wonder what he'd been learning.

Turns out his Spanish teacher showed them Que Hora Es: The Mexican Soap Opera For Those Who Only Had Three Weeks of Spanish in the Fourth Grade.

I watched it and, I admit, I laughed. It's a brilliant piece of satire that, at the same time, manages to demonstrate precisely what's wonderful about soaps - language is no barrier to enjoyment.

Check out a sample below and tell me you didn't crack a smile at least once!
