For years, I've been thinking that I ought to learn Spanish, and there I sat. Then finally, a few weeks ago, I decided, I'm gonna do this thing. So we ordered that learn-to-speak-Spanish program, which I started this week.

Oooh, it's fun! It's interactive! They never speak a lick of English (or any other non-Spanish language for that matter), and so far, I'm liking it and, I think, making nice progress.

Yo soy maestro.

Yo tengo una bicicleta azul y bicicleta naranja.

Ahora, I'm going to ride mi bicicleta azul to the Post Office. Okay, so I'm still pretty limited in my fluency level...

Yep, won't be long now until I can understand those Telemundo shows with all the good looking people assist local Spanish - speaking people with their various communication barriers!

Hasta luego!


  1. I can't speak it, but I can understand quite a bit. Kacey has had Spanish classes since Kindergarten and she speaks it quite frequently in general conversation. So if I know what we're talking about, I can figure out what she's saying.

    Maybe I should learn it too!

  2. ¡Oye maestro!

    Tenga cabalgar de cuidado a la oficina de correos.

    Tenga cuidado para los SUVs.
    I may not speak it well, but I understand enough to know when I am being slammed.

  3. I used to know a bit of Spanish, but have more or less fallen out of practice. Now all I can do is a short bit that makes me sound like a game show host on Univision. Truly something I can place on my resume.
