  1. Part II: ‘The Serendipitous Gift of Language‘ On the Island of Cozumel, Cortés and his forces readied to set out for the mainland of Mexico. It was March 12th, 1519 and the conquest of the New World was about to begin. As they prepared to leave, a canoe was seen approaching the island from the mainland. A Captain named Andrés de Tapia was dispatched to investigate the strangers. The canoe was manned by several indigenous people but as it reached the shore only one stepped on to the beach. In shaky spanish the stranger asked Tapia “Brothers, are you Christians?” The man was a Spanish priest, named Jerónimo de Aguilar, and he had been shipwrecked 8 years earlier in 1511. During his time on the Yucatan this man had become fluent in various native languages. Cortés immediately employed Aguilar as his interpreter and it would be this ability to communicate that would grant Cortés his first advantage vital to the success of his expedition.
