Hi Fernando, thank you for following me. Hope everything is going well with your website development. I have always wanted to learn a second language but have never been very good at retaining the grammar, especially French. I might try your site and see if spanish is easier.

Hi Lis. Please, feel free to have a look when is live. You know? I'm getting so many similar comments to yours about people wanting to learn Spanish that I feel guilty the website is still under development. I need to get on with the work and have a deadline in place, otherwise it's never going to exist. Thanks so much for following.

Thanks Joan. I am enjoying my membership very much. I've never accomplished so much in so little time (whatever I've accomplished in the past has taken much longer), and I know more is coming, so I anticipate the future with excitement. I also know a little Italian (e una bellisima lingua). If you want to learn Spanish, I'm here, so just shout, ok? All the best

Hi Profile. Thanks for following. This is a great place to meet so many good people. I intend to succeed and I wish you the best here and in your personal life as well. I recently lost my father to cancer and I can't still believe it. He was only 71, not too old to die, but that's life. The decease has hit my family too many times, but we stand strong, and face life as it comes. Good to meet people like you I can share these things with.

Thank you for the info. I just checked my Windows 7 and I have TWENTY Spanish settings I can use depending on the country where the person is located! So if I wanted to send an email to someone in Argentina, would I type the email and then change it to Argentinian Spanish?

Yes, I would be interested in seeing your Spanish site when it's done. I've been told my pronunciation is excellent, and that I sound like a native. I run into Hispanics even here in SW WA state, and I was recently encouraged by one to learn Spanish. Would it be Castillian Spanish like I learned in high school, or ???
Reply
Fernan Premium
You will have to change the specific language of the keyboard before you write your email. You can have as many languages in the toolbar as you need and once you have them there, you can just swap from one to the other with a simple click.

You know, having good pronunciation is a great asset and you can use it to your advantage. Yes, I assume you will learn Castillian Spanish, which is the standard Spanish, but once you know the language well and you can communicate with the Hispanics, you will start learning their own vocabulary and trends, depending where they are from, much like British and American English, but having a base of standard Spanish it will definitely help.
Reply
Bill Carver Premium
Gracias por the follow. Sabo poquito palabras en Espanol. And my keyboard only types English, not Spanish. I substitute taught ESL (English Second Language) clases over my 22 years of substitute teaching. It was always fun to use the few words I know in different languages. It always got the students' attention, and most appreciated my effort to communicate in their language. I've thought of having a website in Spanish, but I know so little I'm wondering if it would be effective or not.

I wish you much success here in WA!

Hi Fernando, Welcome to WA I really liked your bio. Looking forward to hearing more. What's the best way to learn Spanish as a second language?
Reply
Fernan Premium
Hi Robert

Sorry for the delay. I've been on holidays away internet-free, but I'm back now. The best way to learn Spanish as a second language is to live or to spend time where they speak Spanish (or any other language for that matter). I know that might not be feasible for everybody wanting to learn a language, but it's by far the best way. A person learning a language in a country where they speak it will become way much more fluent (acquiring even local accent or expressions) than another who just does it by studying it alone, though this last method, with a number of years of sheer persistence, can absolutely leave very good results.
Thanks for the follow. Let's keep in touch, and please, ask me more questions, I would love to answer them.
