I know, I have been negligent or busy. However it’s for good reasons. Nope, I am not dating as yet ( still very single ) but I have been taking Spanish classes and working on my Android app…
I honestly I do not need to apologize to you dear reader. It’s called having a life and unplugging. I have also been training for a 1/2 marathon. Currently I am at 10 miles which is so amazing to me because only 3 more miles and I’m there! It’s only week 7 (14 more to go). I have a whole back story to this but I’d rather tell you about my Spanish classes.
Yes I should be fluent by now since I took 4 years of Spanish prior. However, I am not. I do have something that prevents me from learning spoken languages and I hope that I get over it. I am already terrible at English itself… Imagine another language and grammar in the mix.
Last weekend I went to barnes and noble and picked up these:
I have also been listening to podcasts:
Coffee break Spanish and Discover Spanish. They both have unique teaching and I enjoy them. Coffee Break Spanish is taught by people in Scotland – which was interesting because they taught Castilian Spanish whereas Discover Spanish touched mostly on Latin America. Both have really fun intro songs that make me excited about learning!
I have the Rosetta Stone also.
I even tried changing my language settings in my iPod.
Anyway, I need practice with native speakers so if you’d like to volunteer definitely contact me (you know because Latinos are scarce in New York *yeah right*). I can’t wait to be comfortable speaking because I love most of Latin American and Spanish culture. Yes, both Salsas included!
Necesito practicar mi español todos los dias – hablo y escribo.
Also new: I’m going to be painting more (so feel free to commission).
I’ve bought an easel yesterday and I will be painting most of the sketches that I have been doing on the subway including the micropen inkings.
