I took Spanish in middle and high school...cared little for it then so I didn't take it seriously and forgot about 75% of what I did learn. One of the biggest regrets of my life.
Years later, I received the Rosetta Stone programs on CD Rom. They were expensive, and I used it for a few weeks, learned some stuff, then stopped. Another big regret and it continues to collect dust somewhere in my house.
But with the advent of apps and smartphones, it's easier now than ever to learn a new language. So, at age 37 I am starting to try to finally learn Spanish. Currently using Duolingo for about an hour a day, when I can, and so far, I am liking it. Very similar to Rosetta Stone...immersive, so you learn things by a trial and error process. I'm pretty good with learning words, but when you start to get into possessives, singular and plural phrases, etc that's where it gets tricky for me, and thats how it was when I was taking Spanish in school.
So is anyone else here bilingual? Learning a new language? Does anyone want to be bilingual? Any advice?
