I am from Belarus, Vitebsk. I am a programmer and currently live in Boston, MA, USA. I started learning Spanish January 25th 2014, right after dinner.. :).. I don't know why.. I guess it is one of those 'destiny' things... like a composer writes a music that 'someone' dictates to him.. I started learning Spanish because 'someone' or 'Someone'? told me too... :)
And yes, I do want to learn Spanish to give an example for my kids as well. 'you can achieve anything in this life, because you have anything for it'.
