The time has come for my monthly Spanish language update. So what have I learned this month?
I dared myself to write my first sentence in Spanish but I am not ready. Writing has to come later, after speech. I have spent time reading tweets in Spanish and occassionally browse Spanish-English bilingual websites to aquaint myself with Spanish written lingo. I also watch Spanish cartoons on television. Don’t laugh, my Spanish is still at kindergarten level but I am determined to learn languages, the childhoodspeech way. I have to keep practising making simple sentences.
I did manage to respond successfully to greetings “Saludos” and saying goodbye ” Despedidas”, without having to refer to the dictionary or translation.

Here’s a screenshot of my gmail; you can see how committed Mauricio, the Spanish teacher is. I joined them in July 2008. I am still receiving his updates. It is only during the last 3 months since January 2009 when I began to work on the programme, once a week. There is no payment to be made to get your 1st 6 day free course. So Go for it now.
I found some friends who send messages in Spanish on twitter. It has become less and less awkward to get thinking in Spanish. I am already thinking in 4 other languages so focus is very important in my case. My next step is to start speaking these greeting words and pronounce them well.
