Yea,your right. They don't really talk to me in Spanish but I'll ask my friend Jackie to start.


Don't just ask her to talk to you in Spanish, Gracie. Ask her to talk to you like you would talk to a baby. You'd never ask a baby to "get the ball" if you didn't throw a ball for the baby to get.

Remember this important feature of language - Babies learn language because when we speak to them, there is usually a rich context for that bit of language being used. If your friends do this, you could be speaking Spanish in a very short time.

@JTT,
Oh! I never thought of it like that. Yeah, it'll be weird asking her to talk to me like a baby but I'll explain to her what I mean. LoL. That could be fun! Smile

I am so sorry to read this and my heart goes out to Lady Diane. Dyslexia was always so nice and respected.

Hiya Gracie, Thanks for including me on your list. Many of the friends I have now I met on a2k. I too don't think of everyone I know as a friend. But there are a bunch I do.

I was very sick for a very long time. Many of my old friends dumped me. The people here helped me and supported me through some very difficult times. I don't know what I would have done without them.

BTW, I majored in English. I studied Spanish as a language requirement and French and Italian for fun. The best way to learn a language is to speak it and to listen to it.

Another BTW, I call people I like "kid." (Something my father did.) I've been reluctant to call you kid because someone your age might not like it. Now you'll understand if it slips out.

@Roberta,
Hi Roberta! You're welcome! I really really like you. You're one of my favorites! Very Happy

I'm sorry you were sick and I'm glad you're better. Friends can be real jerks sometimes. Atleast you got rid of those jerks and made some new friends here at a2k! Very Happy I know since your a grown up you probably don't see me as a friend but I think you're one of mine. Mr. Green

And, Oh gosh! You know all those languages?! You ARE a freaking genius! Haha! I live in Cali so I have tons of Spanish friends. I'm trying to learn too. I hated Spanish class so I just did what I could to pass and then forgot it all but now I really wanna learn.

And I don't mind if you call me kid. I like it! Very Happy Very Happy

This is regarding J. Bieber. I think Russell Howard said it best.

@GracieGirl,
Russell Howard is brilliant. He is very funny, and will still be very funny in twenty years time. Justin Bieber is someone you'll be embarrassed about liking in ten years time.

@GracieGirl,
If we're both still on A2K in 10 years time I will hold you to that. If you still like JB I will be incredulous.

And Izzy will supply tickets to a JB concert, flights, hotels and meals. If you haven't gotten over your fear of flying, he'll rent you a motorhome to drive to the concert.
