Hola Alba,

Yo quiero aprender espanol porque yo naci en Caracas, y vivia en Venezuela por catorce anos. Yo quiero aprender hablar y escribir espanol mejor, y quiero practicarlo mas. Yo vivo en San Luis, Missouri, y ya tenemos muchos hispanicos aqui, y los encuentro durante mi trabajo. Yo quiero comunicar con ellos mejor.

Es un reto gozable y nunca se alcanza perfección completa!

It is an enjoyable goal, and you never achieve complete perfection.

I am learning Spanish because I have always loved the language since I studied in high school many years ago. Since I am not working due to the economic situation, I might as well spend my time doing something constructive. I am finding that it is a challenge, but it does help your memory skills. I am hoping to use it to help set up a training program for South American cytology students, so I am working on some translations in that field.

I began learning Spanish about 13 years ago because I had a job as a compliance officer at a hospital (person in charge of making sure that there are no fraudulent practices in either the medical side or the financial side of the hospital) and the hospital was located in an area of Chicago where Spanish was the only language spoken by many of the patients. I thought that learning Spanish would allow me to have direct communication with part of the patient population instead of having to rely on a translator.

But then, 12 years ago, I was in a catastrophic motor vehicle accident and sustained a large number of injuries, the most significant one to my brain. I had to start my life over almost from scratch, and that included learning to read again, speak, etc. One of the many things "lost" was my fledgeling knowlege of Spanish. I have been trying for these past 12 years to recover it. I was almost back to baseline in Spanish when I found SpanishDict in July. With the help of the Forum members I am beginning to be able to tackle new areas of the language that until now had not been available to me.

After the accident, I wanted to study Spanish again because I wanted to get as much "me" back as possible. Now I study it because I love the language, and I love the role that learning it plays in my life.

I also want to become fluent because we hope to live at least part of the year in Costa Rica, where the weather in the Central Valley will be much better for my health than the extremes that we have here in Chicago.

The learning process is slow going for me because I still have a significent problem with short-term memory. Much of what I learn the day before is gone by the next day. But that does not make things impossible...it just means that I have to work harder and wait longer.

Thanks to all of you, my new friends at SpanishDict, especailly Gekkosan, Marianne, Heidita, Lazarus, Izanoni and others who have shared their knowlege, their insights and their time.

One day I will be able to write this entire note in Spanish....but not quite yet.

me encanta espanol! Es una idioma bonita y divertida. Tengo muchos amigos de Peru, porque vivi en Peru por una programa de intercambio, aprendi mucho y ahora quiero aprender mas! Necicito conversar con y entender mis amigos nuevos de alla!

if i made any mistakes, let me know!

  • Ok, a little help Idioma is masculine. If your friends are still in Peru, use "en" . After "entender: use the personal "a" "entender a mis amigos -----" And by "alla" are you referring to Peru or here. It sounds like you're still talking about them. - Daniela2041 Nov 16, 2014 flag
  • If you are referring to "mis amigos nuevos" on this site, use "aquí." I make a lot of mistakes on my previous comment I should have put a period after "a little help" - Daniela2041 Nov 16, 2014 flag

Vivo en Florida del sur, Hay mucha gente que habla español aquí. Tengo vecinos de Mexico y amigos de Cuba.
Estoy retirado y disfruto las clases de español. .Espero ir a Mexico para español inmersión por un mes.

Por favor, corrige los errores, acentos, tiempo y agramaticales.

  • Hi, the only thing I see is, I would use the word "jubilado" instead of retirado. Check your dictionary you'll see why. We even have a member on this site whose user name is "Jubilado," Check him out, he's muy amigo mío. I don't know about "agramaticales" - Daniela2041 Nov 16, 2014 flag
