en la case de los Ruiz, que dice mama a Ernesto?
Mama dice '!Ernesto, barre la ropa!'
this is the first bit of spanish i learned, whenever i was tutoring french at LCC. it was taught to me by a wild and dashing spaniard named Carlos. i couldn't speak a lick of spanish and he was teaching me the subjunctive tense without me realising it.
now i realise it and so has someone else!!! i got a phone call today from the further education institute (adult learning and school leavers) asking me to teach their spanish course this semestre. woohoo!
2.5 hours thursday nights. flip me, what on earth am i going to talk about for two and a half hours. in spanish. to people whoh don't speak it? *laughing!*
och it'll be good craic.
