Es Muy Díficil...I don't even know how long I've been trying to learn Spanish. I've made a bit of head way this year though. I've tried a few programs, some I liked some I didn't. I just love this language and I really want to speak it fluently.
I like how now I can pretty much read stuff in Spanish and understand it. I also catch stuff that's being said on t.v. and can loosely translate for my friends. I'm going to keep studying till I get right. I should probably get some Spanish speaking friends too...
If anyone is having problems with listening, and don't have access to people speaking Spanish (irl or on t.v.). There's this show called Destinos: An introduction to Spanish, it teaches speaking, listening, and comprehension skills in Spanish. It's good for anyone learning spanish, not just beginners. Just google 'Destinos', it's the first link.
