Thank you chileno! I most definitely will take your advise.

Yes! Absolutely! My husband keeps asking me to say stuff in Spanish and I know what I should be saying but just can't figure it out. I forget words. I forget simple words! My course work is what is saying I should be at that point. But I have only been honestly studying (via a course) for 5.5 months now. Is that a time frame that a person should be comfortable with all this new learning?
Please correct my Spanish. Thank you!
Por favor, corrija mi espaņol! Gracias!
