I am terrible with foreign languages, but I have been diligently trying to learn Spanish using Rosetta Stone. I finish the lessons fine but don't feel like I am retaining anything. Any tips?

I just feel like I'm going through all of these modules and my short term memory is fine, but the retention is just not there. Part of me asks what's the point while the other part says just knock it out and be done with it.

Yeah, EY1. No fucking idea what you wrote. #mypointexactly

Start doing Travel in lieu and hang out in Miami (EC base) or El paso (WC base) on the weekends

Go to a predominantly Spanish speaking country - say Mexico for example. And don't try to learn the language. Learn what it means to be Mexican. The culture, the mentality, the ethics and values etc are all tied in the language. Youll never get one without the other. I speak three languages fluently btw

YES! I'm sad that I don't care about coming to school or working as hard as I usually do to develop good lesson plans.
