Hello all, it has been about two years since I last visited the forum.  I have been studying to be a teacher and had the opportunity to work in a school with a diverse population of students.  Other than English the most prevalent language spoken is Spanish.  In order to open up more employment possibilities I am trying to learn Spanish.

Is anybody interested in learning Spanish with me?  We tried a similar thread about learning Norwegian which I found very helpful.  If you are interested just let me know.

Hi King John, I understand Spanish up to an advanced level, but not quite fluent. And I am much better at reading and writing it than speaking and hearing (which is normal).
Currently I am living with two Spanish speakers (one native and one second language) and have taken this opportunity to improve. The deal is that I can only speak to them in Spanish and they can only speak to me in English, and we correct each other when we get something wrong. It's working out great.
How would you like to proceed with learning more?

I was thinking about grammar, vocabulary acquisition, and construction (writing) on here.  If that works for you guys.

Sugiero que comienzes con musica, una o dos telenovelas, y los noticieros de las cadenas hispanoparlantes aqui en EE.UU.. Cuando oigas una frase de interes, repitalo. (como, por ejemplo, el famoso refran del personaje juvenil El Chapulin Colorado: "No contaban con mis astucias!"

Yo soy chileno, y el español es mi lengua madre. Si quieres, podemos comunicarnos en ese idioma.
Es más, te puedo recomendar que te conectes por facebook con gente que habla español, para intercambiar ideas con seres reales.
