I am learning Spanish.

I am learning Spanish!

I use Pimsleur's Comprehensive Spanish system to learn it at home. It requires no books, only by listening and repeating, just like the way we learn our first language. So far I am having fun, and I highly recommend it. : )

Muy bien! Y ahora puedo escribirte en Español? o todavía no puedes leerlo?
Now I can write you in Spanish or you can't read it yet?

Muchas gracias! Spanish is indeed very beautiful and I've always wanted to learn it. (I love learning languages. My first language is Mandarin Chinese.)

I can only speak easy sentences so far though.... :D

Yes, Pimsleur has lessons for many different languages. One thing to keep in mind though, since it doesn't use any books,spelling could be a problem. Even though it says not to check a dictionary or write down stuff while listening to the lessons, I feel it's helpful to do so. (I listen to the lesson first time without checking dictionary, then I listen to the same lesson again, but this time I try to write down my answer and then check with the dictionary.)

I really like the system.

Pupu:
You are? Isn't learning a new language fun? I feel like it's a key to a new world. Good luck on your Korean learning!

Penélope:
Jaja!!! I am not that ambitious! :)
If I can communicate simple ideas, I would be happy already!

Gisele:
Muchas gracias, mi amiga! :)
