"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. " - Dead Poet's Society

Mi Libros En Español Que Me Ayuda Practicar Mi Español
I will need to have actual conversations in Spanish before I learn how to Speak and Listen, naturally. But I guess learning how to Read and Write in Spanish is a good start for me in learning a third language.
I'm still a beginner but it amazes me when I skim through a page and read words in Spanish that I can actually understand what was written. I may not be able to interpret them word per word but the context clues already build images in my head. I think that's how reading a heavy material works anyway. We read using context clues.
It feels so exciting! I haven't been excited like this for many weeks now. Probably because I haven't really had set myself personal goals as of late. I've been taking my Babbel courses but some days it tires me because it feels completely just studying and just that. But reading books in Spanish is more than just studying the language but the stories I read, it makes me feel so alive.
