Someone left a comment on my “about” page mentioning Harry Potter (thanks for commenting!) and it’s very timely. Today, in a fit of book splurging, (one of the Barnes and Nobles in my city has an excellent science section; I only go about once a year but I really stock up!) I decided to undertake an ambitious project that I’ve been toying with for a while. I completely stole it from a good friend, by the way.
I’ve been wanting to learn more Spanish for most of my life. And especially now, when I volunteer at an Argentinean cultural center where I swear everyone but me speaks lovely Spanish, I really need to learn more Spanish. So I bought Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, en Espanol, and I’m going to see if I can slowly but surely get through it and learn more Spanish. I learnt all my best English while reading, so hopefully I’ll find this more engaging than a traditional route.
If I’m successful, I’ll post a review in Spanish and if I’m not, I may never speak of this again. Either way, it should be fun!
