    I want to learn Spanish so I can star in the next Amoldovar film. One day my dream will come true and I'll be cast as a drug trafficking, transvestite nun or another typical character. If my acting career fails to take off at least my Spanish will help me when I am on holiday in Malaga.
  2. Sheila
    If I learnt Spanish I would eavesdrop on all the Spanish people in Edinburgh
  3. David
    What a great opportunity! I've always wanted to go to Madrid and see the Prado and the Reina Sofia. This would be a great introduction to Espania!
  4. Mark Maclean
    I have always loved the rich Spanish culture and history and want to learn more about it. I love the sound of the spoken language. My girlfriend is from Barcelona and i cant wait to visit the city, it looks amazing and the architecture of Antoni Gaudi is just awesome. It would also help if I were able to understand when she is cursing at me in Spanish (or Catalan) - like when I am not cooking properly or something ( Hostia !! is not a word of encouragement like she said - thanks google translater jajajaja ) - Mark ;)
  5. Carol Watson
    I want to live in Spain for a year to try to know it better. I love the openness of the people and the mix of European and Moorish cultures in their food, art and architecture. I want to learn Spanish so that I can live in Valencia and participate in real life there. But learning Spanish opens up a lot more than Spain as Spanish is spoken in so many countries. I don't want to spend my retirement limited to one country or even just one continent. So much to see and do in an unknowable amount of time.

    I'm with Sheila on this one. I adore the Spanish culture of course but seriously... for the majority of the time I'm at home in the bonny Burgh. I like to combine my natural curiosity in life (read: people watching) with my other love of story telling (read: eavesdropping on other people's conversations). Only today, lying in the park for a quick lunch time power nap and a much needed dose of vitamin D, the quick, feisty and energetic tones of a couple in DEEP conversation lapped over me. They were Spanish, I could recognize that much BUT SALT, if only I could've understood what the drama was about!!! It would have greatly improved my day. Left only with my vivid imagination, I am ashamed to admit I can only eavesdrop in English. How dull. Please help me SALT.

    i want to learn spanish so i can go to brazil to see the carnivals and football
  8. Adela P
    I want to speak Spanish because I m planning on taking a long trip to South America next year.I want to spend some time in Sao Paolo, a place I'm fascinated by and knowing Spanish will come in handy. Also, I d like to read Cervantes and to watch Almodovar' s films in their original language. I think it's better to learn a foreign language in a fun, interactive group environment like SALT than taking an online course by yourself.
  9. Iain
    I want to learn Spanish as I'm a stumbling Brit, who can only speak the one language - English. I'd like to alleviate my feelings of inadequacy somewhat. My wife would also like to return to the island of Mallorca and the old town of Pollenca, which she visited lots when younger, and I could flex my new skills to ward off randy Spanish suitors, and really make an impression.
  10. Ellie Spellman
    Throughout the summers of 2010 and 2011 I worked as an Au Pair in Seville for a lovely Spanish family. This was challenging enough, given that I was to move to a new country at the age of 21, but I also knew nothing of the Spanish language or culture. As I taught the young girls English I was able to learn colours, numbers and different types of animals - with this, I could probably converse with a 3 to 5 year old in Spain! I wish to learn Spanish in order to go back to Seville to stay with, what I would now deem, my Spanish family and converse well with them in their language. I hope to learn so that when someone asks me a question I have both the ability and confidence to say more to them than simply 'si' or 'no'. I would like to go back to Seville and no longer be that quiet English girl but the girl who can actively participate in a decent conversation!

    I want to understand what Shakira says!
  12. Claire
    Te quiero Rafa! I wanna be your girlfriend!
  13. Rebecca
    I want to learn spanish because I want to sit on my sofa, eating doritos with salsa sauce while watching (and understanding) those melodramatic and exaggerated spanish telenovelas!
