In Spanish I've been listening to a lot of music. This is the easy part of the learning project - I love music, and I have some Spanish favourites that remind me of my childhood. Yes, I was listening to Spanish even way back! In case you are interested, here are some of my favourites:
Juanes -La Camisa Negra
Jeanette - ¿Por qué te vas?
Manu Chao - Me Gustas Tu
The last song I linked is catchy and slightly funny (to me, anyway!). Jeanette, in my opinion, has amazing songs. If you like the one I linked, you may also like Frente a Frente, Corazon de Poeta.. This video has both, and they really are quite lovely. I like the poet one, because, well.. I'm a poet.. ;)
In Arabic, I've not done anything.. I feel very bad. I really must get back on track (perhaps a schedule would help, but I am notoriously bad at those). I really should review the words I know so that I don't forget them. In Finnish I still remember a few things, but it's the same thing: I would remember more if I reviewed. I found another Spanish resource website yesterday, so I will be using that too.
I hope to find more Finnish resources online, too. In Spanish, I also have two books called Bitacora, that I had bought for a class I attended last year. (It was helpful, but it didn't really work out that well - timing and distance.. sadly..) Luckily my Spanish level is good enough that I feel self learning is entirely possible - with some input from natives at some point. Next time I meet one of my Spanish friends I will try to have a mini conversation with her.
Are you learning a language, or two? How is it going? Do let me know your thoughts and ideas in the comments below! Thanks for reading and see you next week!
