Odd Shot--so tell me why...

...if you can learn to speak in a week...
...you need a four week set.


Clicking the logo here or in the sidebar will take you to Odd Shots details. I am becoming more confident in Mr. Linky, though he still disappears for me from time to time. Do leave a link and a comment both if you have participated.

The great humorist Mark Twain once said, "In Paris they simply stared when I spoke to them in French; I never did succeed in making those idiots understand their language." Well, that's the pitfall of learning a foreign language away from its natural habitat. We might become proficient in the grammar but there is never a certainty about the nuances of the language.

Well, you can probably speak something after a week - sentences take a little longer.

I have made some changes...

LOL! What a hoot!

I guess the first week onlycovers 25% of the words? But when have labels every been truly accurate?

Janie said...

Great catch on the Spanish lessons dichotomy. 1 week, never. 4, not too likely, at least for me.

PERBS said...

Were you browsing a bookstore to catch up on re-learning your Spanish? Ü I can teach you special words and sentences for phrases you would use in German in that much time! Ü

Good catch!

Thanks for dropping by mine I got up before the computer went weird on me.

I never did get my bridge post up because of the white out problems but am going to see what I missed below.
