[Yes, I know the second “n” in “nino” is supposed to have a tilde over it … but I don’t know how to insert one using my keyboard.]
Yesterday our Rosetta Stone Spanish [Levels 1-5] arrived in the mail! (We initially tried downloading it for free, but the program required a registration key to continue. So, nearly $500 later, we have a compact little package from Amazon sitting on our front stoop …)
Hopefully soon we will learn more useful phrases besides “El nino bebe leche.” (“The boy drinks milk.”)
Since southern Florida is pretty much the equivalent of northern Cuba, Jim and I have decided to embrace the influence and get a head start on learning Spanish before making the official move to Miami.
I’m stoked about the prospect about potentially being fluent in a second language by the time I graduate from FIU and I think it will allow us to better absorb the culture there and meet new people.
Are you fluent in more than one language? I’d like to hear about it!
