Hablo Español. Y tu?

27 11 2011


One of my lifetime goals is to be able to master 5 languages. Excluding dialects.

I have always been interested in the spoken word. It’s a wonderful feeling being able to speak a native language in a foreign country all part of immersing yourself in the country’s culture.

One of the countries I have fallen deeply for is Spain. Beside the fact that speaking Spanish immediately elevates you to sex symbol status, I felt it was about time to start learning on a new language since I last did my Italian language scholarship a few years back.

And the verdict?

Me encanta! (I love it!)

Spanish is alot like Italian without the crazy hands.

(How do you say..)
Spanish: Como se dice?
Italian: Come si dice?

(where’s the toilet?)
Spanish: Donde es el baño?
Italian: Dove e il bagno?

(I love you)
Spanish: Te amo
Italian: Ti amo

It will take me a few months, years even to master Spanish but I m loving the process. And I finally understood what ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien’ means!
