Re: "We have never spoken/conversed before."

I know conversar isn't a reflexive verb, but aren't verbs sometimes used in that manner to signify "with each other" or something of the sort? Maybe?

Re: Medicaid and medicare

Hm. Well, both are health insurance. I think medicare is for elderly people, and medicaid is for impoverished people?

Re: cup of tea

I would guess that taza para té would refer to a teacup - that is, a cup for tea rather than a cup of tea.

Yeah, high school. I think it's proven that by the time you're 12ish it's harder to learn a new language.

Re: Other languages you would like to learn

I was only there for ten days, which was sad; we started in Madrid (with which I'm pretty much in love) and went farther south from there.
