Hola a Todos

Hi everyone I found Torisimo through another website and am very pleased. I own a foreign language school in Phoenix, AZ but am still learning Spanish myself. My wife speaks Spanish and I French.

I hope to get to know more of you and learn from your experience. I also have a blog about general foreign language learning that's not language specific. If you've got a second check it out and let me know what you think.

Phoenix, AZ Spanish Lessons

Regards,
Aaron K

I have a plugin for vBulletin that flags certain posts as spam. Since your post has 2 links and is your first post, it got flagged. I almost deleted it without looking at it, but I just visited you blog and it looks useful enough.

So welcome to the forums and I hope to see you around. When you need help with your Spanish, don't hesitate to post and I'll try to help you-- That's what I'm here for

Thanks. I think I'm increasing the priority level I've given to learning Spanish and am going to be here a lot more than I expected.

I already speak French so I already understand about 60% but definitely need to work on my grammar and speaking ability.

Best of luck with your Spanish. The fact that you speak French is definitely going to be a big plus for you.

Are you learning on your own or are you in a class?

By myself

I'm learning by myself but my wife speaks Spanish and I know how to teach myself a foreign language after having done it with French.

They say (and it's true) that once you've learned one foreign language, subsequent ones come a lot easier because you know how to learn a language.

So, does French share most of it's vocabulary with Spanish? I imagine so. Most of the differences must be in pronunciation, because being a romance language, I would guess the grammar is about the same too. Is that true?

French - Spanish

Antonio,

Actually French only shares about 15-20% of it's words with Spanish but there are a lot of similarities and words that you can figure out based on your knowledge of English and French. With English and French alone I could understand about 40% of what was said and with a little practice and experience I'm at 60%.

So overall there are a lot of differences and French is the most different of all the romance languages. But it's close enough that you can still figure it out if you put some effort in.
