Another confession, I’m afraid. My experiment with learning Spanish online in December was almost a complete failure. I signed up with, as always, good intentions, but life got in the way. Between hectic finals at school, travel and other related Christmas obligations, and cumulative burnout from a packed few months, I didn’t have the focus or willingness to give up my “break” time that I thought I would. I listened to some podcasts (recommended by my sister) on the treadmill and tried a few other ideas, but nothing really stuck.

Luckily, the online language program is free through my local public library, and it’s not going anywhere. Maybe a good resolution for 2013?
