I am (unfortunately) back in the U.S. for now, but I am using most of my free time to slowly teach myself Spanish using a few books I have and great online sources like Tomímismo! My hardest part is verb conjugation, especially when trying to say it. Most of the time it comes out in the infinitive instead of the conjugated form because I try to speak as fast as I think. And the past tenses just give me a headache right now...Anyways, everyone seems to be very helpful around here, so I thought I'd finally join and get help for some of the questions that come up (daily)!

¡Bienvenida a los foros! Hopefully you will learn as much as we do. Practice makes perfect

I do that too, well, sort of. I speak to my dogs in Spanish (just to practice) but my verbs always come out in the present-tense 'yo' form.

"Quiero agua? . . . d'oh! Quieres agua!" "Tengo hambre? . . . TIENES hambre!" etc.

Good luck! Practice makes perfect (or at least, less imperfect).

Hi Brooke, nice to meet you!
