In the YouTube video below, I talk in Spanish with my Spanish teacher, Jose.
This year I plan to learn French and continue learning Spanish. I will be posting more video of myself speaking Spanish, in hopes that each subsequent video will be an improvement on the last.
In the video we talk about the need to have a certain foundation in the target language before you start speaking.
When I lived in Mexico City, Mexico, I notice this firsthand. I would make mistakes all the time, and it was extremely frustrating and demoralizing.
It actually led to stop studying Spanish for a while.
Well, now I am back, and I plan to speak Spanish better than ever before.
