Como se dice...?

We have been trying to learn more Spanish over these past couple years. I did take 3 or 4 years in high school. However, my senior year highest level Spanish course was taught by the cheerleading coach. We spent most of the year making posters and spirit sticks.
So...ever since our trip to Honduras in 2oo5, we have slowly been practicing and learning. Here are some good resources we've found that I wanted to pass along:
1. Edufone is a great little site that my hsuband has explored more than I have, but I get the podcasts called "Finally Learn Spanish" and they are great.
2. Behind The Wheel Spanish is an excellent investment. We purchased those as soon as we got back from HO and have listened to them in the car during commutes and road trips. (It's also much cheaper than Rosetta Stone, which we read was not the greatest for learning Latin American Spanish.)
3. Native speaking friends. Thankfully, we have a couple of friends from Mexico, Honduras, and El Salvador that we're able to chat with every once in a while. It's a must. Plus it's fun! (and scary!)
4. La Charamusca is a podcast that I have listened to before. I think it is a talk radio show from El Salvador. Good to put on while cleaning around the house just to soak in the sounds of another language.

Vientidos

We're still waiting to hear back from USCIS on our renewal approval. (We changed a couple of things about our request and will have to see what they approve.)
And basically that's about it for now.

22 months and counting...
