Hello everyone! I've been one of the avid visitor of the very useful site Tomisimo! Yay! And I just have the time to join the forum :D so I can improve my Spanish. Im Mariel, from the Philippines by the way ^_^ My Spanish is very basic, and I learn them through music... Latin music that is. And I can understand Spanish sentences... well the idea of it but not the real meaning (hope you got it :erm:). And before, I can't stand hearing Spanish (songs and tv shows) because Spanish-speakers are fast talkers. But now, thanks to Latin music (and with the help Tomisimo) I don't have any trauma on hearing and learning Spanish ^_^

Im sure I'll have a fun learning here

Welcome Mariel. :) Once you get accustomed to hearing Spanish, you won't think they speak so fast anymore.

¡Bienvenido, Mariel! :)

because Spanish-speakers are fast talkers.
I fully agree. I'm learning Spanish myself, and it's really hard for me to distinguish between the different words, when I hear a speaker of Spanish.

I can now watch Spanish shows, although I still find them talk fast ^_^ but I can distinguised most of the words although I'm having hard time knowing whats the word... Anyway, listening to Spanish music really help me to improve ^_^

Thank you very much Jorge! I know your country is great! Love your beaches (Cancun and Acapulco is my favorite place I want to go someday ^_^), and your food... yum yum

Hola ElDanes! Same here, I still have hard time distinguish the different words... like 'a Dios' to 'adios' for example :)

Welcome from me too, Mariel. I have hispanic amigos who tell me that when I talk they think I am talking fast. I told them that is what I thought of Spanish speakers. They said "Mismo, mismo, mismo. It is the same. It is the same!" Sandy
