A Fun Way to Practice: La Vida de un Principiante

Hello, language learners, I’d like to share the last poem under the subject heading “A Fun Way to Practice” with you.

La Vida de un Principiante Completo
by Lingodea

Escribo como una tortuga caminando en tierra.
Escribo muy despacio porque dibujo cada palabra.
Esa es la vida de un principiante completo.
Pero esa vida no es mala porque
Escribiré como una tortuga nadando en agua dulce
Cuando llego al árbol de oro.

As much as I've enjoyed being the turtle, I hope you've enjoyed reading the poem. It's like a child learns to talk first. I'm an ultimate beginner in Spanish grammar, but I speak and write. Duolingo lessons amaze me.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read, and thank you again for the valuable comments some of you have left on my previous posts. It's been an honor to share my poems with you all. May you have success with your language learning goals.

Adiós y espero volver a hablar contigo

The title of the poem reminds me of the name of certain chapters of Pío Baroja's book El Árbol de la Ciencia, especifically of C1: La vida de un estudiante en Madrid. Inspiring.
