Learning new languages

Filed under: Travel in the U.S. — Heligypsy @ 10:41 am

Well, I have been working up content in my head for another installment on this blog regarding the efforts Keith and I have made to learn to speak Spanish. “Speak in a week” the series is called – and yes we are making some progress. “Donde estas los llaves?” is a favorite of mine, “Where are the keys?”. Around here there is a lot of practice on that one.

But then this morning I am reading one of my favorite blogs – the one linked on the right under blogroll, the Quirky Kitsch Girl and I am reminded of the new sort of language that we are all supposed to be practicing – for tomorrow is International Talk like a Pirate Day

I know it’s last minute, but I can’t help but think how much fun this could be. Count on it, I’ll be talking like a pirate for sure (can you do pirate with a spanish accent?) Here’s a bit of a clip with lessons for us all. Thanks for the reminder Jen!



  1. Arrrr! Thanks, Matey! Keep me posted on the Spanish – slowly, I’m absorbing it. )ne would think, after 8 years in Florida, it would be a bit better. Cheers 🙂
