Hi, I have decided it is about time that I took up learning Spanish. I recently purchased a house in Spain (Mainland) and have visited many times. I wish to retire to Spain in 5 years time. Whilst I have visited Spain on many occasions I have always relied on my wife to do any conversation. It is now time I took the plunge. You may ask why don't I get the wife to teach me? This would cause all kinds of problems and issues, trust me, we both love each other but getting lessons from your partner be it driving or language I would not recommend.
