Some things I like to do.
I like to read, which is actually putting it mildly. I read lots and lots of books and magazines. I like to make collages out of scraps of paper, then send them away to mail art shows or to my mail pals. AND I like learning Spanish. It's been my "passion" since I took the one hour a week for 15 weeks conversation class offered by the University, when I was still teaching there (spring 2007.) While doing the class, I started to listen to Coffee Break Spanish podcast, which was, and is, so helpful for beginners. The other site I'm finding so helpful is Spanish-Word-A-Day. Besides a new word 5 times a week, there is conjugation, a sentence, a joke, a quote, always something interesting...a photo, a book review. Here I am with a few of the many Spanish reference books, workbooks, magazines and novels that I use to help me. I've just ordered a gran diccionario, one of those BIG ones. I'm hoping that, eventually, I'll be somewhat fluent, but for now, I'm enjoying the process of learning.
