It feels really good to just pick up words here or there in a conversation
So I'm learning Spanish and at my martial arts school there are many Spanish speaking students. I just started Spanish a couple of months ago so when they're speaking fast to each other I don't know what they're saying. Yesterday I heard one of them start a few sentences with "Quiero" and in another sentence the dad was telling his son to get his shoes. I didn't get the whole sentence but I heard "zapatos".
Small progress is progress! :)
Although I am not currently around French speakers, I feel the same way when I hear or read French in the media.
