Based on some family and friends in Spanish congregations the halls seemed more friendly to me. At least the parties and congregation picnics I attended did. I knew a number of Spanish JWs that had ZERO flack for going to college, unlike the English using the same hall. Perhaps the Elders realized the advantage of education better than pampered Governing Body members.
The missionaries I met from Spanish speaking countries seemed to have a practical bent "whatever works" type of attitude.
