Hola ¿Cómo está usted?
Well, we are not really there yet, but soon. As a family, (and hopefully my husbands parents will join soon), we are learning Spanish with Rosetta Stone.
I have tried a number of different ways to learn a new language over the years, including private tutoring. So far in just one evening at home all 4 of us are hooked on this system.
As with all things new, I’m sure the novelty will wear off and we will all get a little tired of what seems so exciting now. But, with 4 of us working on it together and hopefully, talking with each other and supporting each other, we should stick to it.
That might seem a little strange, considering the time I have spent in Oslo, working amongst Norwegians and I don’t know much more than Takk!
But if this process goes well, maybe I’ll try a round of Norwegian. (Given that Canada has officially 2 languages, I really should add French) What am I up to, 4 languages now? Throw in Italian, once you have Spanish and French down…but then German is very close to Norwegian. Is it even possible for someone my age to go from being a uni-language speaker to 6? I don’t think so. (Strange or possible?)
