Coming Along

Back to learning Spanish.  This time I'm using a free app called Duolingo and my goal is to just finish it.  I'm 22% done, so pretty happy with the progress.  I'm totally stuck on this new genre called Narco Novelas which are all in Spanish and shown on Netflix with English subtitles.  These are stories where the main character is a drug dealer.  So far, I've only seen the stories featuring women as drug lords.  No good guys in these things at all, but full of action and helpful to learning the language.  I binged watch them on Netflix and have no idea what they're saying, especially if it's anything other than Mexican Spanish.
 
At any rate it's a diversion.  I also started my new volunteer job, so retirement is coming along though I wish I could find a suitable part-time job.

Good for you! Learning Spanish sounds like a great idea. Just don\'t start writing in Spanish, or I will never understand you! LOL!
I did take a course in college but have completely forgotten it.

Adios!

Good for you! It\'s wonderful to keep your brain active and I hear you about working part-time. I\'m retired too, but feel the need to get out and be with people - not just socially, but using my head, thinking, solving problems. Good luck with your Spanish.

I used to watch the Spanish channel when I lived in Michigan, I could understand some of the words and what I didn\'t, I\'d make up my own story to go with what was going on in the show...hubby at that time wondered how close I was to what was going on...never knew and never will...good luck with your endeavor....hugs, Sandi
