Are you trying to learn Spanish?

An important part of learning a language is mastering the vocabulary. It can be overwhelming to try and learn thousands of words. The answer is to do it in small bites.

Dictionary.com has a Spanish Word of the Day. You can check their web site or sign up for daily emails.

Actually, I am. :-) With two brothers who are fluent, and living where we do, I wish I had chosen it in HS instead of French. :-)

As another free resource available to you, in iTunes you can find some audio podcasts for learning languages. For instance I just started "Coffee Break Spanish" (without the Coffee for me), which you can find in iTunes or go directly to their website at http://www.radiolinguamedia.com/cbs/www/index.html . In any case there are free options on iTunes for Spanish, French, Japanese, Italian, German, Chinese, Russian, Irish, Hebrew, Portuguese, Korean ...
It's an amazing world!

Yes, Spanish is a good choice. Rachel, you might consider Rosetta Stone. Our daughters are learning Stone via Rosseta Stone, and Janine likes it.

Derek, thanks for the suggestion.
