One of the goals on my list is to learn to speak Spanish. I am a big fan of learning about different cultures and the best way to do this is if you can speak the language. I want to be able to go to Latin America, Cuba in particular, and be able to converse with the locals.
I have now signed up for an evening course that will start in September. I started learning Spanish a few years ago but because I didn’t get to go to Spain or Latin America during that time, I didn’t have the opportunity to practice so I have unfortunately forgotten most of it.
Now all I need to do is to start collecting together my Spanish text books and useful materials. Its time to dig out the old dictionary and my notes on basic Spanish I feel.
I have just rediscovered a language based blogger. Benny the Irish Polygot at Fluent in 3 Months is basically travelling around the world learning new languages every few months. His ability to achieve this has really help to inspire me and will hopefully motivate me with my own actions.
