In high school I learned basic French. Although French isn't something I have needed to use frequently, it has come in handy from time to time -- mostly while reading books. Spanish seems to be the secondary language most in demand in America since there are more and more Spanish speaking people in our country. I have wanted to learn Spanish for some time because it seems like I would actually be able to use it. So when I stumbled across a Spanish/English dictionary in a thrift store for 50 cents I decided to purchase it. My goal is to learn one Spanish word a week. That sounds manageable. So I use a highlighter to color the word in my dictionary (so I remember I've already focused on that word) and will post the word and its meaning on my blog.
If any of you have a Spanish word and meaning you'd like to share as a word of the week, feel free to send it to me.
The word for this week is lindo, which means pretty.
