Recently I was challenged to learn Welsh. I had never tried a language like this. I tried to learn Italian since I have relatives living in Italy and actually could speak it when I was a child. It’s just as easy to forget it too. I tried to learn Spanish, since I’m so close to Mexico and plenty of people around here speak it.
In the past I tried to learn the way I was taught in school. I’d get a workbook and try to work through it. I have to say, that is about the most difficult and boring thing in the world. No wonder I gave up. But this time, I made use of modern technology and to my surprise, I am learning.
