Another question, David. Do you think you can become bilingual through study as opposed to being bilingual because of your natural environment?

It's possible, but extremely difficult to gain native-like levels of fluency by studying as opposed to natural acquisition as a child.

There are really no shortcuts in language learning. The best thing you can do it practice, like what you're doing now. Pay a lot of attention to what Rusty explains to you, since he is putting a lot of effort into it, and it will help you learn. Above all, keep practicing.La verdad es que no hay atajos en el aprendizaje de un idioma extranjero. Lo mejor que puedas hacer es practicarlo, como estás haciendo aquí. Pon mucha atención a las correciones y explicaciones de Rusty por que él se ha esforzado para hacerlo y te ayudará mucho a aprender. Sobre todo sigue practicando.
