Latin American Spanish/English practice for seniors

Anyone over forty or fifty years of age and learning English - willing to talk to a senior learning Spanish?

Hi Joy. I've learned that I had to be straight forward as even when I say things directly they are often ignored. :)  I point a lot of people to that oh so silly profile. I now am getting more quality time with serious folks. 

 

It sounds like Fer was willing to write to you in English here in the messaging system for you to correct their English and for you to attempt to write to them in Spanish. You could even write partly in English and whatever you think you know how to say in Spanish. In writing the difference in Spanish will be neglegible if the person doesn't use slang and accent won't be an issue. It's a nice way to get started.

Fer - thank you for the response! I need to get a little better with where I am before I speak with someone so skilled, and I do not need to add the differences in the Spanish of Spain to the mixture in my head right now - it is already a little disorganized.  :)

Sonia, Dorothy - thank you for the encouragement!  Dorothy, I did read the About Me as you requested - I grinned as I read.  I love your straight forward spirit!  Dios la bendiga....

I'm a senior and lots of wonderful people of all ages have helped me and have become friends here. A child takes many years to reach basic fluency, but with our vast and ancient knowledge base :D we can learn much faster.

Of course, we can learn any language without importing the age. It's clear that we can learn with one more difficulty degree that a children.
