No hay de que

15 Jan

Funny how the first things we’re supposed to learn are the niceties. Don’t give it a thought, what a nice thing to say.

I remember the first time I saw A Walk In The Clouds, I know what you’re thinking Keeanu Reeves can’t get past being Ted, but I still liked the movie, a lot.

My favorite scene is the serenade. I’m going to find that song somewhere and learn it! I have been to several Hispanic weddings and other get-togethers, and maybe I was being racist, I’m not sure. But I really thought that someone would know that song, no one has. Not yet. If you know the song I’m talking about and you know the words, will you tell me, por favor?

I have now begun “drills on pronunciation” This is the part where I have cero idea what I am learning to say, but I repeat it over and over again so that I can say it correctly once I learn what it means and have a reason to say it.

It’s not so bad, derecha, derecho. pase, paso, palon, pelon. I can do this, I have my mouth in this half twist with my best chihuahua attitude in full regalia.

Things I have learned:
Soy mujer, I am a woman. It would be difficult totell otherwise, but I suppose it is good to know if I am talking on the telefono.

Ser the verb for permanency. tu ser o no tu no ser…. ok that was really just a guess, using the little bit of how to make a negative. This is one of those irregular verbs that I am going to have to learn:
yo soy
tu eres
el, ella, ello, uno, usted es
nosotros somos
vosotros sois
ellos, ellas, ustededs son

I think I’ll be ok with the s words but the eres and es are going to be trickier I think they sound a lot like some other words I am trying to learn.

Am I a senora or do I get to go back to being  a senorita??  I think it might have less to do with marriage than having kiddittos….that’s my guess.

My amiga is sending me Rosetta Stone, the very thing I thought the Set was supposed to be like.  YEAH!!!!!

Hasta luego mis amigos!!
