I love watching movies Mexican and Spanish. There are not always translated into Polish. Besides, I want to visit Spain and meet people. 1 month ago
Entries from everyone
I’ve been using some online sites to help me with this, while school’s out. 5 months ago
I found an entry of someone doing this with http://duolingo.com/ . I found it to be a great tutor. It even supports a microphone. (don’t have one, but I bet it helps)
So far finished two lessons. I want to be able to talk Spanish with my friend who is from Ecuador. He taught me a couple of words, it’s how it got my interest going. I highly recommend anyone doing this to try Duolingo. 6 months ago
Puedo hablar español, pero no puedo hablar rápido ni puedo encontrar la palabra que necesito cada tiempo. Necesito practicar mas, y estoy un poco triste que no he practicado mas cuando he vivido en Texas. ¿Hay muchas personas en Tennessee quien hablan español cada día? Yo no sé. Pero tengo esperanza que puedo practicar mi español después vamos a Nashville.

Is there anybody who wants to practice Spanish? Unfortunately I ‘m kinda a beginner :( 9 months ago
Last night, I made a quick stop at Chavez Supermercado in the same plaza while I waited for my chicken wings order at Wings Fiesta, nearby my house.
I bought a few pastries for myself and my dad. When I checked out, the cashier, most likely by habit, greet me asked me if I needed bag in Spanish. I replied in Spanish no thanks, I do not need the bag.
I guess I caught her by surprised by replying back in Spanish, although by default, the majority of residents in the San Francisco bay area speak more than 1 language.
Told her I just came back from Central America and that’s where I quickly brush up on my Spanish skill.
I walked out of the supermarket and felt so good. Not only my 2 months backpacking in the Central America region was a much needed break and trip for my “late youth” but it was an equally fulfilling and meaningful trip where I had volunteer and share “my abundance” with others, whenever possible.
Last thing, it validate that although my official Spanish immersion lesson were only 2 weeks, but traveling in the region forced me to pick up more Spanish than any classroom could have provided.
Yippee….hooray. The cashier’s comment at the supermarket really re-enforcing that it was a good investment on the money to take Spanish immersion program.
Now, I can only hope that I will have similar success next week onward, when I’m traveling in SE Asia.
My desire to be fluent in multiple languages (Spanish, Chinese Mandarin, French) is manifesting. 9 months ago
I’m back from my 2 months backpacking trip in Central America. It’s been only more than 3 weeks and I sense that I’m loosing the immersion ability already.
I shop at the Spanish speaking/own supermarket in town to brush up on my Spanish. It’s not much of a conversation but rather to maintain it.
I ask for a pound of this, or that, etc…
I also went and borrowed some more Spanish for travel books at the local library so I can retain/refresh now that I’m back home. 9 months ago
I have just completed my week # 1 of Spanish school here in lake Antitlan, Guatemala.
I studied Spanish for 2 years in high school eon ago but never use it nor practice it. With all things in life, use it or lose it. I came to Guatemala with zero Spanish and after 1 week, I’m able to make simple conversation or speak basic phrase, in my broken Spanish.
It is a stepping stone, after all. 11 months ago
I’m raising my son (he’s only 6 months old) in a completely bilingual environment. By default, my Spanish has improved by leaps and bounds in the process. I’m not fluent yet, but I have been living in a faux Spanish world for over a year now (I started as soon as we decided to have a baby). I have all of my random pieces of technology and settings set to Spanish, I read books in Spanish (though they are only at a junior level so far), I listen to Spanish radio, watch Spanish films (sans subtitles), y hablo español en casa todo día cada día. 16 months ago
