Kristen, is this the type of thing you want?
And you're right. "You can never have too many phrases or stop expanding your vocabulary."
Okay - confession time!
I started learning Spanish (properly) four years ago when I started my degree. First year went really badly and I also found out I was expecting my first child just before my exams so let's just say it was a bit of a tough time!
I then took a year out to spend time with my new baby son, returning to university when he was 9 months old. I can't live near the university (too expensive) so I drive for 3 hours every day to attend lectures etc.
I am also learning Chinese and am registered with my university as a disabled student because I have certain difficulties (namely Asperger's Syndrome and dyspraxia) which make university that little bit more difficult. Also 95% of my classmates spent a year in a Spanish university as part of their degree which I could not do.
I don't want to sound like I am whinging (and sorry if I do!) but I have worked really hard this year to catch up and so far have passed everything.
No, my Spanish is not as good as it should be and I am definitely lacking in vocabulary - but I am determined and want to do the best that I can.
I respect your answers geofc and often vote them up because they are witty or particularly astute etc.
But your comment has upset me a little bit :(
It's rather late in the day for learning simple phrases like this. When did you start learning Spanish?
