If you mean in the layman's sense of the word, I'd say yes. I speak it almost as well as I speak English. I grew up here in Peru after coming here at age 5. I have been speaking both languages since then. My English vocabulary is at a better level than my Spanish level because I went back to England after finishing school so it stayed at that level until I came back 5 years ago. David
