Just joined Duolingo for this purpose. It's a super helpful website for learning new languages.
I really want to get over my apprehension in trying to speak the language since my reading comprehension is improving. Been trying to make listening to Spanish radio to get better at listening, too.
My son is in a bilingual daycare and I really want to be able to support him in retaining his spanish skills when he no longer is eligible for that program. We live in Texas too and his half sister is from Mexico so I want to help facilitate good communication between them. Here is hoping! Duolingo seems like something to at least get some vocabulary down.
I would recommend the book Forever Fluent by Gabriel Wyner! That's how I got my level of Spanish from Intermediate to fully fluent (and even went from having a french accent to none). The technique transfers over to other languages as well :).
Using Duolingo for this goal. Reached 11% proficiency with it so far. Trying to learn 3 / 4 words every day and duolingo has a good app to keep you on track.
Super important language if you want to travel!
My goal for this year is to go and stay in Barcelona for at least 3 months. Somehow this city attracts me, and I have never been there. I'm a dancer and the dance scene in Barcelona is incredible, so that's the main reason for me to learn Spanish. I want to be able to communicate with the local people and of corse it's important if I want to be involved in the dance community fully, I know that most people there speak Catalan but for now I will start with Spanish and I heard that it is sort of a similar language and Spanish will be more useful when I will travel the world! Wish me best of luck guys, because from my experiences leaning language is not my strong side.
@olyasupreme common girl, commercials are the best - it is short, usually funny and have lots of handsome people in them. Take a look on that one :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CBTrNc0luA
@olyasupreme We speak both Catalan & Spanish here, so if you speak one of them, you will not have any problems to communicate. ;)
@merkuria Great, I really hope so. Are you from Barcelona?
@deluna Mierda ... Ahora no puedo concentrarme en el lenguaje
@olyasupreme Yes! Living here, near the sea.. :)
I suggest we all write our entries here in Spanish. What do you guys think?
@JudithCamara Buena idea, vamos
I just used google translate to post it :) not sure if it's correct.
i wish we had someone to help us out here
@JudithC Excellente! De esa manera todos pueden praticar :)
I'm a native Spanish/English speaker, so, I learned... see more
After saving, it will be sealed for 2 years. Are you sure you wrote everything you want?
Stay motivated! Remind yourself of your goal.
and stop after
I truly believe Augustine’s words are true and if you look at history you know it is true. There are many people in the world.
