I took a couple of years of Spanish in school, but that’s been…..um….quite some time ago, and if you don’t use it, you lose it. I couldn’t carry on a conversation en espanol if I had to.
But I’ve decided that I want to brush up on my Spanish.
I really like (and heartily recommend) Duolingo’s online language learning courses. Fun and painless, and all you have to do is watch a few advertisements.
Some of the vocabulary they start you out with is a little odd, though.
On the plus side, if I need to reassure Mrs. Garcia that there are no penguins in her bathroom, I am prepared.
Hope all’s well out there, friends, and God bless.
