Default Learning a new language

Preparing for my move to FL.... Trying to learn spanish. Any tips? I bought a spanish dictionary, and am writing down things I say, and translating them, and trying to learn that?

Where in FL? You might need to learn bluehair, not Spanish.

I have lived in So.Cal. most of my life, and you kind of pick up words and phrases after a while. I definitely can't speak fluent Spanish, but I can usually pick out enough words to understand what someone is talking about.

Classes help slightly. If you really want to learn, go to places where NO ONE speaks english. You will have to learn.

A little alcohol helps free make the mind a little more flexible also.

Oh, and it is "Cervesa"

Yup, Cerveza, pick up a Corona bottle


La Cerveza Mas Fina

the beer more fine

In laymans terms "Damn good beer" see there is education in alcohol

BTW punk you arent going anywhere in Fla without me

and dont they have spanish class in your high school?


you will learn basic words from a dictionary thats about it. Take a class to learn the pronounciation and variations of words in the spanish language. Otherwise when you speak to a mexican with a sentance formed by your basic words learned from a dictionary they are gonna look at you like you just fell off the turnip truck Take it in high school where its FREE! and pay attention! I didnt and now I am regretting it
