My Methods or the Lack of Said Methods

My overall idea is to focus on learning to read and write Spanish.  And, from there to acquire spoken Spanish.

I’m starting with a grammar.

And, then, I’m supplementing with various other activities which are fun and practical.

Those activities include

I’m trying to keep it fun and interesting.

I was reading the blog, How to Learn Spanish (using free online resources!) by Andrew_the_Odd, his post,How to avoid wasting months learning Spanish the wrong way (and learning the wrong type of Spanish)–get started the right way, learn to talk like native speakers do was discouraging as it essentially states that my plan will be fruitless.  But, then again, I’ve never succeeded at learning Spanish before, and so far this is working for me.

I, also, would like to  somehow track my progress aka test myself (assessment).  Although I am not thrilled with this particular self assessment from NCSSFL, it’s the best that I have currently.

I’m considering focusing on a weekly subject such as La Comida for this week.  And, next week might be animals.

Today’s activities- I still need to do my study time, but I found the international kid’s books website.  Awesome website.  I also printed up a kids calendar from a Mexican supermarket, HEB.  Used up a couple ink cartridges.  It was quite colorful and many pages.  Oops.
