Learning Spanish

For anyone wanting to learn some spanish quickly I can recommend " Mi Vida Loca" on the BBC website. It's fun and its free!

My experience on the Frances was that you don't need to speak Spanish :) I am planning the Via de la Plata in April 2012 and I thought it might be a good idea to speak some Spanish to communicate with the locals. I therfore ordered "Shortcut to Spanish" by Marcus Santamaria. Check it out on I only bought Level 1 which is a '31 day course that shows you how to comminicate in Spanish using thousands of Spanish words you didn't know you knew' , I must admit that I was sceptical about this but once I received it and started the course I found it easy and fun. I will be able to speak some Spanish :D

Well I've started a crash course to learn to get by with Spanish.
It's a 1to1 situation, probably mad for the expense,
hopefully it will improve my Camino too :)

She, my teacher is Mexican, living down the road, so that's a little bonus.
