Ok so I made a sort of resolution to learn more Spanish. My boyfriend/husband is Mexican. We have been together three years, but I don't speak much Spanish. I have learned quite a bit over the years, just buy listening and associating, but I started realizing that my relationship was missing something major. Me and my husband were missing that general conversation that people have. We don't get to just go on and on in detail about what happened in our day or explaining our pasts or future wishes. Everything has to be sort of general, not a lot of detail because it gets lost in translation. Soooo seeing as I really think this relationship is the best ever and want to do all I can to make sure it succeeds, I finally logged on a took 3 lessons.
I am glad this site is here. I used to use it all the time for translations and now that the lessons are available and so easy to use... I can't wait for what my Spanish speaking future holds.

You can also start a Spanish conversation group in your neighborhood.

Wow, thanks for all your support guys. I wasn't expecting such thoughtful replies. It does really help that I am enveloped in Spanish for several hours a day. So I am familiar with the words from hearing them over and over in conversations between my husband and his friends, family or neighbors.
I was telling my husband this morning all the words and a phrases I had learned last night. He said "that's good babe" and I told him why I was doing it, that I thought our relationship was lacking in conversation.

You are lucky because you can practise speaking Spanish at home. It may be useful for you to take lessons from a tutor. Also, you may want to read more Spanish. You can get El Pais or other newpapers online. I have also used the Spanish edition of Readers Digest, called Selecciones, which you can get it in most grocery stores.

Congratulation to your decision, it is a wise one. If we don't know the language deeply there is so many nuances we miss and words don't only means what the diccionaries say it does. Words also brings feelings that is hard to get if we don't daily live with it. It is all those nuances in the language that brings us so many missunderstanding when we try to communicate over the language barriers.

But if we are only ready to do the journey to concuer the language our life will be so much richer and more colourful. To gentle whisper in your husbands ear "Tú eres cielo" will bring you closer to eachother. Our native tongue is the shortest way to our heart. In a living marriage the comunication goes in both directions.

I wish you the best in your spanishstudies.
