Spanish Learning Update 1

Hello everyone all across the world!
As I mentioned in my blog the time before last, I finally resumed my Spanish studying after about a two-decade break.
In order to make my learning more efficient and effective, I intentionally pick two locations. One is a café located in Motomachi, Kobe. Motomachi is well-known as a trendsetting area in Kobe and I love it there. My steakhouse is also in the same area, by the way. This café is incredibly comfy although it’s sort of crowded. I can extremely focus on studying and memorizing new Spanish words and expressions very easily. The other is my home. It’s the best place where I can concentrate on listening to audio files relating to Spanish in a quiet environment. Plus, the writing practice is also very important to help improve my Spanish skills fast. So, I always keep writing down words and expressions on paper again and again until I can recall them quickly.

Now, let me show you some of the expressions which are easy and useful.
1: Mucho gusto = Nice to meet you
2: Muchisimas gracias = Thank you very much
3: Es esto delicioso? = Is this delicious?
4: Gracias por hoy = Thank you for today
5: Bienvenido = Welcome
6: hoy me divertí mucho = I had a lot of fun today.
If you are interested in learning a new language, why not practice Spanish together? It would be a lot of fun for sure! 

In addition to my progress, I will share my favorite Spanish song with you.

Today’s tune is Luis Miguel’s “Separados” from his hit album “Busca Una Mujer” released in 1988.

Here in Japan, this song is famous as Último Dragón’s theme song. Último Dragón is a Japanese professional wrestler who has the Lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) fighting style. Whenever I hear Separados, it reminds me of my childhood and motivates me to study hard. Hope you like this song!
Look forward to the next tune!

Have a great rest of your day!
