Oooook. Just got back from my second spanish class. First off, note to self; don’t plan work after that, brain fried. Second, getting the gist of a conversation and speaking the language properly, quite different proposition.
Finally, even though these classes are fun, I’m sure the “you want to learn a language, get a girlfriend who speaks it” school of thought would have been a better way to go. Much harder to find than a 130$ course though. Much.
