I have decided that I want to learn Spanish! Just because. So I am spending 10–15 minutes on the Duolingo app every day (today is my first day). Duolingo came with high recommendations from several people I know, plus it has great reviews. I hope I stick with it! I know so very little Spanish to begin with—only stuff I learned from Sesame Street way back when plus the words and phrases you commonly hear, such as this one.
I love the way Spanish sounds. I love the trilled Rs. I love how it looks in print. It's very useful to know Spanish just about anywhere in the U.S. My community has a large Spanish-speaking population, and I think it will come in very handy at my job as well.
I'll be looking for people with whom to converse!
