I wish to become fluent in spoken Spanish. I am interested both in taking courses, taught by a language teacher, and in a language exchange partner. In the past I have studied Spanish in formal academic settings, and I have spent some time in Mexico and, earlier in life, in Spain, but I have never gotten beyond elementary language skills. I am committed to learning Spanish and spend an hour or more daily on self-study classes, but I feel that I need live spoken interactions to achieve real progress in the language. Regarding language partners, I am sure that there are Spanish-speaking people who are like me and wish to learn English, and I am certainly willing to help.
