Bucket List #1: Learn a 3rd Language

There is something about learning different languages that excites me. For one, it’s interesting to know the different Filipino words that have Spanish origins. Second, I like learning about different cultures along the way. Third, I have  more respect for people who have persevered to learn more than two languages. Kudos to you guys!

Learning languages does not come naturally to some people. There is actually such a thing as language intelligence if I remember it right from Senora Maria. I only wish I am language intelligent like some people. A girl can dream! (haha!) Like I mentioned in my previous post, I am a frustrated Mandarin speaker, reader and writer. I am currently trying my luck in Spanish, having fun however difficult conjugating the verbs may be.


BUCKET LIST #1: I wish to learn a third language. By learn, I mean that I want to more or less be able to carry a simple conversation, read if not speak comprehensively. Anything is possible as long as you believe! So here’s to me practicing Spanish. Forgive my rusty composition. I would appreciate corrections and suggestions!


Basic Spanish (Muchas gracias, Senora Maria!)

Me llamo Mariel. Soy Filipina y vivo en Las Filipinas. Soy un estudiante de la Universidad de Las Filipinas. Quiero estudiar espanol y aprender muchas cosas. Estudio espanol muchas veces en la semana. Estoy muy alegre!

Me gusta acostarme a la una y media pero tengo muchos trabajo para la clase. Voy a dormir pronto cuando termino para  levanto temprano. Quiero desayunar fuerte pero yo no levanto temprano a menudo.


Ack. I need to practice. Es muy muy dificil!
