Your first Spanish class

Doing listening comprehension exercises

I-understand-nothing-gif

When you score the highest out of everyone on a test

Native speakers telling you your Spanish sucks

Obsessively studying to avenge your dignidad

When people finally start telling you your Spanish is impressive

When your friends ask if you’ll help them with their Spanish homework

When you are assigned to read your first book of Spanish literature

When you start  having dreams in Spanish

When you realize your Spanish is 100% better when you are drunk

  • Haha, this post made me smile and also reminded me to open my Duolingo app to get back to business with learning Spanish!

    • Thanks so much for the read, I’m honored! And yes, Duolingo is a must! I’m using that and the free Alison.com courses to learn French now!

  • I have a serious love hate relationship with Spanish, I was really good at it in school, but now? Ffs. I could just about get by in Spain. Maybe I should download an app or two and make an effort to pick it back up again!
