Great Spanish Learning Video

Came across this today, and thought it was really fantastic. It's a video that teaches Spanish by imitation and repetition. Just thought this was really great. I'll probably be adding these to my weekly Spanish drills and studies.

You can find the entire lesson plan on their youtube page. They have a lot of tutorials and I found them all very informative.

OOOPS! Save Posts as Drafts Instead of Schedules!

Well, this is embarrassing! I'm trying to get automated with a lot of my computer tasks. Last week I decided to schedule a bunch of posts for this blog, so that I could finish up another project I was working on. I should of checked to see if everything was working OK, but I didn't.

 Apparently, I clicked save instead of publish which saved each post as drafts, and not schedules. So now I have a bunch of stuff that was supposed to be posted last as drafts. So, this week, I bring to you last weeks posts. Sorry for the inconvenience but it will give me a chance to put together some bigger posts I've been planning on working on for you guys.

 Thanks for reading and choosing to learn Spanish with me!

Regresamos - We Return

Regresamos - We Return :)

We return is really I return. So I took a little break from Spanish, and I began regretting it. I'm to the point now that I can usually understand a good chunk of what I read in Spanish and also comprehend what's going on if I'm watching Spanish language T.V. programming.

For a little while I was content with that, but now I want an even better understanding and I'd also like to improve my fluency. With that said, I plan on doing a lot of blogging here throughout 2017, and have set some pretty high goals for myself by 2018.

My goal is to post Monday - Friday or lunes - viernes . There will be no posts during the weekend or fin de semana .

Some of you may have noticed that the url or web address has changed. I let the domain expire and it's gone. I did edit the graphics to change the domain, and if you had the page bookmarked, you may want to update it to the proper address. Apparently the site was getting a little traffic and the domain was purchased by a spammer. Avoid the other site, it looks like malware or something. I'm very disappointed about that. 

Thanks for reading. Gracias por leer and I hope you decide to bookmark this blog and learn Spanish with me!
