My hubby gave me the Spanish version of the Rosetta Stone for Christmas 2009. What with all those people moving in and out of my house, I installed it on my laptop and set it aside for a more interrupted stretch of time. Yeah, funny joke-there's never such a thing!
But I decided do or die-I'm gonna learn this thing. So I started on Monday after everybody left for work, school and fishing. Why did I wait so long?!! What a cool way to learn a language. I set it up on Latin American Spanish and went to work. I think I just might learn a bit of Spanish before my next trip to Mazatlan. Of course, the only really effective way to learn a language is to go where they speak it and beg for patience, which I hope I can do. The people of Mazatlan are so hospitable and accommodating that they speak very good English, so I might have to ask them to practice with me. I have two months to learn enough to actually practice with!
Well, done with the lesson for today and I just got called in to work, so I'd better brush my teeth, eat something and get going.
