one semester of spanish love song

I just wanted to share this video of how to use minimal Spanish to woo your love. One of my fellow teachers showed this to me my last year of teaching, and I thought it was hilarious... and so true. My kids loved it too.


Thanks, Amy T., for reminding me. I needed a laugh. Good memories. :)

(And I'm kind of posting back to back here, so make sure you don't miss Jonah's 15 month post.)

THAT was funny! I even knew all that he was talking about which I think probably made it even funnier! Thanks for the giggles! Jennifer of Southeast, NC

I've heard you sing this before. Now I know where it's from.

LOLOL, that's really cute. I'm stopping by via another blog and I have a page called "Special Families" and wanted to let you know that I added Jonah's button to it.

That is soooo funny. I'm in Canada so we don't learn Spanish in school, just French. So is it sad that I understood about 90% of that because of Dora the Explorer?

Yep, I understood everything he was singing. Guess I haven't lost that much in 26 years!!!

Jonah is such a cutie, and I pray for y'all frequently. Hang in there, Mom!

¡Denada! ¡Muy gracioso! I had a Cuban teacher for first year Spanish. Second year was a Chilean professor on sabbatical who spoke no English. We taught her more English than she taught Spanish. Third year Spanish, she was able to teach us some more Spanish. Fourth year, I was in class for a week. I quit when I found that 3 & 4 th yr students would be in one class. I figure that out of all that time in class, I learned about 2 yrs worth. My older daughter has a double BA degree in English & Spanish. She cringes when I try to talk to the Hispanic waiters!
