anyone who hasn’t done this yet- do it! it’s pretty much the unofficial 2nd universal language other than English. i’ve been learning since 7th grade, and it’s my major in uni. If you have Spanish-speaking friends, get them to practice with you (i.e. try to speak only Spanish for the day). When i go on missions trips, it’s a great asset to have.
For those who want to learn quickly and efficiently, I recommend Rosetta Stone. The CIA use it! :)
