I did a fair amount of Spanish reading over the weekend. I got in a good amount of talking and listening with Clara in Spanish. I mentioned to her that we have been speaking too much in English lately and she was more than happy to switch 100% to Spanish. That's what I get for opening my big mouth
I also got a lot of writing practice in Spanish (via WhatsApp) with both Clara and several friends. I feel like Spanish is well covered right now.
I still have not watched any TV/movies. However, I do have Netflix now so I will remedy that soon. Probably starting tonight. My goal is to watch at least 1 hour of Spanish TV per night. I will say that the World Cup is really messing up my nightly viewing habits. I'm a huge soccer fan and the World Cup has a lot of my attention currently.
As mentioned previously, I've now completed the first 7 lessons in the iOS version of Assimil Spanish. The first 7 are free so I'll need to decide if I'll buy it or not. It's only $45 so it isn't terribly expensive. I'm a little on the fence about it since I'm not sure how much I'll learn from it. I would like to complete it just to say that I did though.Wunderlust:
I'm still fighting the urge to dabble in either German or French. I'd like to have the ability to read French, however, the other skills I don't really have a need for. Although, some basic level of speaking might one day come in handy.
German is appealing because I have been giving a lot of thought to immigrating to Europe. Clara is open to it and has mentioned living in Spain more than once. I wouldn't complain. Germany is also a possibility due to the work available there, which is why I'm considering at least a basic level of German. I'll keep thinking about this. I should also look into how difficult it is for a tech worker to get a work visa in the EU. If anyone has any info on this, I'd love to hear about it.
OK, that's it for today. Until next time...
