Yay! I have found another Spanish course and have had the second class now. I am learning more Spanish than I knew a month ago, though I'm still a long way away (years?) from not needing subtitles on a movie. In addition to vocab and exercises, the teacher gives us simple grammar explanations. It's all very awkward and bumbling, but hey. Hoy no hay llubia. Yo soy, tu eres, el es. Perra isn't pronounced the same way as pera. Don't make a mistake or you might buy a dog about to have a litter instead of a pear.
