I got a late start today and didn't have time to put the content together for the week. I was watching some video's last night and thought I would share this one, about greetings.

This video covers most of the common greetings like hello, hola, good morning, buenos días, and a few more.  I'll try to come up with some original content by tomorrow but if not definitely by Wednesday o Miércoles. Gracias por leer. Thanks for reading.

¿Como se dice "video" en español? How do you say video in Spanish?
Se dice vídeo. You say video.

Yup, video is pretty much the same word in Spanish but with an accent over the í and the "b" like sound of the "v".

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!
