One of the things on my much larger to do list in life is to visit South America. I would really love to be able to speak Spanish whilst there. Unfortunately the only Spanish I know I learnt as a child from an episode of Rainbow I watched, repeatedly.
Having rewatched (half of) the episode I am not too sure what I liked so much about it as all the characters are really annoying. Probs just watching it for the rainbow…
Anyway luckily for me my housemate Felix (the same Felix I cooked an awesome Paella for) is a fluent Spanish speaking Australian who was more than happy to teach me the basics.
I received a breakdown from him of some key verbs and some guidance on sentence structure and after 30 minutes I was speaking sentences, albeit very, very, painfully slowly.
Felix kindly wrote all this information down for me so I could take it on my holiday to Sydney and learn it whilst chilling at the beach – the perfect place to catch up on my Spanish pronouns!
Too bad I suck at packing and ending up leaving it behind.
(Note to self: I’ve realised I actually haven’t learnt any more Spanish since receiving this lesson last month, must do better. Muchas Gracias)
