jvz8a Monday 10th of July 2006 09:03:08 PM As a native... I want to improve my Spanish too :( There are still so many things I don't understand about it. Of course I am fluent, but that doesn't mean I know 100% of my own language. *sigh* I have still too much to learn...
If I had to chose among the options (I won't so only non natives vote), I'd say... number 6 (:p), number 2 and number 10.
Osman Thursday 13th of July 2006 03:57:42 AM number ten for me :D
but easy option is not included after seeing irregular verbs :p
edition: i don't mean that Spanish is a difficult language. I think it is sweet, soft and lovely language and not that difficult to learn! When i think of exceptions in German, i feel relieved even when i see irregular verbs of Spanish :)
movingunits Saturday 15th of July 2006 03:12:13 AM 7 and 8 for me because where I live there is a large number of Spanish speakers and when I would hear them I'd want to know what they were saying, so Spanish seemed lke a useful language to learn, now I can usually understand a lot of what they say but I'm nowhere near fluent.
4evafly Wednesday 19th of July 2006 01:54:11 AM i want to learn because that's what my boyfriends family speaks and i want to surprise them one day by being able to communicate
Caramelicious Friday 21st of July 2006 12:07:29 AM I chose number 7. I live in Indiana and there is a large spanish population in my state. The spanish population makes up more than any of the others in Indiana. Most of my friends are spanish or can speak spanish and I want to be able to communicate and have something that I can share with them. I love Spanish the language and the many cultures from all of the countries.
hamid18 Thursday 27th of July 2006 10:43:03 PM I chose number 9. I currently work with alot of people from Central America and it would be a big help if we could understand eachother better lol
and it would also be helpful the next time i visit Mexico
MasDespacio Saturday 26th of August 2006 07:56:53 AM poll: If I had to pick one I would say I want to be able to communicate with more people
yolanda7796 Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 11:58:16 PM I am married to a Guatemalan man and "mi suegro" doesn't speak English.
caeireann Thursday 12th of October 2006 05:49:40 PM I guess I found a great interest in learning Spanish when I watched the movie L'auberge espagnole as I got interested in Italian from Stealing Beauty.
Plus I want to learn it so I can communicate and understand all those people in the Americas.

I've watched that film 3 times. I liked it very much. It was made in Barcelona and in it many languages are used: French, Spanish, English, Catalan, Danish, German, Italian, etc. In Spanish the title is "Una casa de locos". :)

Ladyamerica Thursday 09th of November 2006 01:25:13 PM my career: the main reason I want to learn is becuase of my career. I went to school for Human resouces and I think a second and maybe even a third language will be very helpful in my career search.

by the time you finish reading this, there will be more illegals in the US than legals. Hey! What if I read it some ten times in a row? Will the universe explode? :p
Marta Wednesday 06th of June 2007 05:16:37 PM I ticked in the boyfriend option but many others apply as well. And first of all: cause IÂ´m living in Spain - no such an option there though.

Bregolas Thursday 24th of April 2008 10:11:41 PM There are some reasons for me I want to learn spanish:
- it is a very important language, spoken by about 450 million people
- I was born in Madrid, so somehow I see it partly as obligatory to learn and know some spanish for that reason
- I like the language and culture
- always good to know to communicate when travelling around in countries where the language you learn is spoken
