I have learned to never take a year off of Spanish again. I dont remember anything now !!
You will learn it more quickly this time than the first time, though. I took a lot longer than that off, and it came back pretty easily, considering.
I have one year to learn the basics again, Im not sure its gonna go well. Hopefully it will :)
Yep irtward is correct, learning something for the first time is different than taking a lot of time away and relearning it. Many if not all things you've previously learned is going to be brought back out again and should come fairly quick. In a nutshell, the info's already in you brain as opposed to someone who's learning for the first time. Buena suerte!
