  1. Really good suggestions! I’m on day 3 of my Spanish Lesson now. yey!!

    Oh I love the last item. Yes, write letter to yourself. I will do that.

    I encouraged my bf to dance tik tok

      1. I was on the fence in between Japanese and Spanish. My Japanese students inspired me to really lern their langauage but I reading letters is a big challenge for me.
        Spanish on the other hand is quite easier because the Philippines is under the influence of Spain for 300 years ( yup that looooong). Some of our words are tha of Spanish.
        Hola! 🙂

        1. I took Spanish in High School, then worked with a lot of Latinos, I had no problem learning. Then I can speak to my adopted cousin in his first language. That is really good for your brain to learn a new language

          1. fact: when you ask a Filipino “what time is it now?”, we either answer in English or Spanish. We do not tell time in Filipino! We say either 2 oclock or alas dos. etc…

          2. Oh that’s interesting. I’ve noticed a lot of people from around the world are either bilingual or even trilingual. My mother in law was born and raised in Germany and she learned English as well as a kid.

          3. yeah you are right! I never realized I’m multilingual.
            Filipino or Tagalog is our National language but 80+% of Filipinos Speak English. Plus a little Spanish.

  2. Some great ideas here. I honestly don’t understand how people can be bored. I am coming to the understanding that being happy with one’s own company is not something that comes naturally to some.
