It has been a week since I started learning Spanish, I now know that apples are called 'manzanas'. Technology has made learning so easy, I am amazed that there are not more people who learn like this. Spending 15- 20min per day on the apps and repeating everything they require of me has helped a lot.
Since I last posted I have found the card section on the verbling mobile app , soon all the objects in my house will be covered in sticky notes. If I had my way my friends would also have had sticky notes on their foreheads, but they do not like this idea. We are all still a long way from speaking or understanding Spanish, but there is slow steady progress.
We have even decided to find "How I met your mother" in Spanish and watch an episode each day, just so we can get used to the hearing the language, speed and hear some pronunciation.
I suspect today is the perfect day to put in some extra learning time as it is raining cats and dogs, or as a Brazilian friend explained to me "it is raining pocket knives".
I am excited about the future and the adventures that the new language can bring.
Education is the key to your dreams.
