Trying my hand at Spanish.

Thursday, October 15, 2020

'Trying' is the key word. I tried last year to study Spanish and did fairly well, with some help of a friend, then I lost interest, as I do with most hobbies.

I'm going to try again, but I have forgotten a lot. Words look familiar but just can't place them. I found a couple sites, Duolingo and another site that has games, I think, if I can stay focused I might get back some of what I learned.

One of my friends here gave me much encouragement, thanks Sally. Or gracias sally.

I do have some Spanish channels that I put on while on computer, plays in background.

I know this doesn't get me off my butt, but keeps my mind busy. At a time like this, I think that is important too.

    No, I don't have any plans in using my Spanish, I have two Hispanic friends, but with everything, we can't get together. I just would like to accomplish one thing I've taken an interest in. Living in Florida, Spanish would be the practical choice. I tried last year and feel I did a better stab at it, but seems harder this time around.
    Maybe a year older makes a difference. lol

    Always learning is a good thing! Do you have place in mind for mastering this language?

    I did try German with a friend a few years ago,but really hard to learn two languages. You just can't say,
    'Yo quiero wasser.' ('I want' in Spanish and 'wasser' in German) emoticon

    Thanks. I found another site that teaches languages and has games.

    I did take a year of French in high school eons ago so don't remember much at that.

    Well done on having another go at learning Spanish. I had to check on Google but my response to you is "de nada" I think. I can't speak Spanish at all and only a limited amount of French. Hangover from when I was in school. I think it is great that you want to do something like this.

    I've been doing Duo Lingo trying to learn Spanish. I am not very good but I have learned a lot of words.
    Good luck to you in learning a new language. It is a lot of fun and keeps your mind going.
