I’m learning Spanish and I feel dumb. I’m limited in everything I do. Buying groceries, going to a bank, ordering coffee at a coffee shop, food at a restaurant or saying hi to people while walking the dog. Imaging that everything you do is 10 times harder and that’s how I feel now.
I’m on my second week of going to Spanish classes and no, I can’t say I see a difference between now and two weeks ago. Hopefully next time I write, I will be able to report some progress. For now I can say that I’m trying to immerse myself as much as I can. Spanish podcasts, classes, articles, sticky notes and iOS apps.
Learning Spanish inspired me to work on my own language learning tool. I’m almost done with a small in-browser tool to practice vocabulary. The first step was to think of how I use my laptop and utilize the part of the screen I stare at the most. I made my learning almost involuntary yet very accessible and easy. I’m planning on releasing it sometime this week once I make sure there aren’t any major problems with it.
Oh and did I mention that I finally touched angular.js?
Here is a preview.
