Habla Espanol?

If not but you’d like to start learning and have access to BBC2 you might like to set the video tonight because the BBC are broadcasting 20 episodes of the Sueños World Spanish series (Tuesday 3 May from 01:00 to 06:00).

I really wish I’d kept up with Spanish. I took daily lunchtime classes while working at Big Multinational Company in Belgium with an excellent tutor with an almost hypnotic voice that forced even the English (yes, I mean the English not the British Lisp) to speak with a perfect accent. Trouble is, I’d leave every lesson speaking with a lithp lisp.

¡Hasta luego, mis amigos!

    …as eny fule nose, if you are abroad you just need to speak SLOWER.AND.LOUDER.REPEATING.
    .THAT’S.REPEATING.THE.WORDS.OFTEN.
    .IF.NEED.BE.ADD.AN.O.ON.THE.END.OF.EACH.WORD-O. :^)

    …however, my in-laws spend 5 months a year in spain (have done for the last three years, will do forever) and have mentioned thinking about learning to say the odd word – gracias for the heads up, I shall record it for them :^)..

    Hola! Speaking of languages, I’ve been wasting a lot of time playing around with
    Google translations. My blog looks very funny in Japanese. :-)

    I love spanish. No good at it, tho.

    I once met this incredible, vibrant grandmother from Mexico who had an unshakeable conviction that everyone in the world secretly knew spanish; they just needed to remember. She had travelled the world speaking nothing but her native tongue, and surprisingly enough, her theory seemed to hold true.

    We used to have great chats together.

    I learnt French, German & Latin (very useful – not!) at school, but I’ve always fancied learning Spanish. I can get by in French & German with a phrase book and can say ‘a beer & a coca cola’ in Spanish, ‘please’ & ‘thank you’ in Greek, and ‘I love you’ in Russian! I’ve always fancied learning Welsh, as my Nan came from south Wales, and I lived in Cardiff for a few months once, and loved it.
