The Amazon Kindle mobile reading device comes with their NowNow service included, where you can ask any question you like and you get a response from a paid human researcher. I asked a question and got the unexpected answer below.
I do believe this was an honest mistake by a researcher trying to be helpful. For other things, I have found NowNow to be a useful and good service.
Update: Amazon resolved the issue. See their follow up responses that I’ve posted in the comments section below.

What are some good places to learn Spanish in evenings and/or weekends in Manhattan New York City?

Get a job in the back of a restaurant and you will make money and learn spanish from your co-workers.
If they had said instead a Spanish or Mexican restaurant, that would have been acceptable, but in the back of any restaurant? That’s presumptuous.

… and the second new reply to the Spanish question:
Immersion is one of my favorite aspects of language learning. I watch movies, listen to music and radio in Spanish. I think it helps trigger my memory and keep my Spanish on the first page of all time.
Learning Spanish is one of the important
things I would like to consider. When travelling, it is very essential to have
knowledge on how to speak the language of a nation so that it is easy for us to
communicate with others. I really love to learn Spanish language too.
