Penelope Cruz appeared on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night to promote the DVD of "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and to celebrate her Oscar nomination for supporting actress for her role in the film.

She talked to Jay Leno about some of the language barriers she encountered when she learned English, have grown up speaking Spanish and learning French in school.

She made mistakes in the learning process, however.
