Hello, my name is Rose. I have been using a phone app for quite some time, and have finally finished all of my skills!! It's been two long years with some long breaks within and well worth the journey. I'm now 42% fluent according to the app, but I can't converse very well. I can say things, but it takes me a lot of practice in my head to figure out what I'm going to say.
I have read a few children's books in Spanish and understood most of what was in them. I've also been looking at a magazine printed in Spanish, and I can get the gist of what is being said in the articles.
Also, I couldn't make this post in Spanish but I'm certain I could have read and understood it if it were in Spanish.
My goal is to become conversational in Spanish and to improve my thinking abilities.
