¿Habla espagñol?

<!–[if !mso]>st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>

Have you ever learned a new language as an adult?
I’m taking up Spanish. I started two weeks ago using the Michel Thomas method and I’m listening to it in the car every day for about twenty minutes. I wonder how well I’ll be able to speak by the time my summer holidays roll around…

Learning languages is a something I’ve always been interested in. I studied French and German and live in France so I use French every day. My children are bilingual and I’m often amazed at their ability to process new vocabulary. They’re starting Spanish in school now so it’s interesting to see the difference in the way we learn. They’re already mocking my Spanish accent, even if they only know about twenty words themselves! 

Now how to pronounce that dish? Paella!!!

I’ve been following Benny the Irish polyglot for a while now and I love the way he has the courage to jump in at the deep end and even post up videos of his progress. So, rather than ‘fluent in 3 months’  I could call my challenge: Paella en seis meses.
