Actually, working at a rest. really isn't a bad idea! I'm in college & had taken some spanish courses, and I worked at a mexican resteraunt for a couple of months (as the person doing the register so I could speak english w/ the customers & handling money) and the guys there taught me SO MUCH! Then..most of the guys were married to women who spoke english as a first language, and they were able to help me even more, b/c they spoke fluent english & fluent spanish..and they knew the "regular" way to speak spanish..not all prim & proper like class teaches you.

 

So maybe you could find someone to just tutor you..speaking regularly w/ someone who knows the language well will teach you A LOT! :)

I'm thinking a class is going to work better for me. I'm the kinda person that needs to be in front of the class to understand what's going on!!!
I've definitely had a passion for the language. I can remember the first time I had lessons - in DAYCARE! haha It was love at first sight love.gif lol

And yeah, about having a Spanish last name... when I get married I'm going to be "JAIME LOPEZ" OMG rofl.gif I refuse to go by that name living in a heavily populated spanish area. It's bad enough when Blockbuster, CVS, etc. call me and the recording goes "This message is for Hi-me Miller..." bwahahahahaha! Also, during prom season in HS I got all the tuxedo ads... sheesh! So now I've decided that I will start going by both my first and middle names "Jaime Lynne" when I take on the last name Lopez wink.gif I mean, can you imagine being at the DMV or something and them calling "Jaime Lopez" what their reactions would be when a blond, fair skinned girl with FRECKLES and green eyes walks up to the counter?? LMAO rofl.gif

You are too funny!!!rofl.gif Yup ur picture does not reflect a Jaime LOPEZ!!!!!!!
I guess we all have to deal with those kinda things.
When I'm at work and we are flying to say El Paso or Harlingen I have passengers coming up to me & just start speaking spanish. AND they have attitude when I don't speak it back to them! I mean, hell I wish I knew how! No need to be upset!!

Thank you Samantha! We had them done the week before the trip we got engaged on so I opted not to do engagement photos as we had just done family photos.

Uno, Hola, Gracias!!!! That's seriously the extent of my spanish (sad I know) My FI got the Rossetta spanish thing and he learned it incredibly fast. He's also a smarty-pants, but I have heard only good things about Rossetta. Good luck!
