My Spanish lessons seem to be going a lot more slowly for me than the English lessons for Sebastian. I chalked it up to age and ability to retain that many words. Today I found out Sebastian took "Basic" English in grade school and then another six years in high school. I have to tell you, I felt a whole lot better after that.
I figure that in a year or two I might even be able to have a conversation with someone. OK, that might be a bit pessimistic but that's OK. As long as I can ask how much something costs and be able to understand what they say back to me, I'm happy for the time being.
