I actually like this time of isolation and self-quarantine. It’s giving me a lot of time to reflect upon the present and the future, as well as decisions that I have made in my life. This time has been a game changer as well as far as taking on interests and new hobbies that I could do to improve my life. I’ve always been someone has had an interest in learning a foreign language and I think that right now is the perfect time. In College, I took 2 semesters of Elementary french, so I’m by no means fluent, but I understand AT LEAST the basic greetings.
I’m contemplating learning portuguese. It’s kind of weird how inspiration strikes you. I was watching an interview with Cristiano Ronaldo (The Professional Football Player) and he was speaking in portuguese (seeing that I’m a native spanish speaker) I understood most of what he was trying to say, so I said: ‘I’d love to learn portuguese. It seems that its very much like Spanish so i’ll give it a try – so that is what lead me to my decision.
Yeah, I think i’d be great. There are a bunch of books i’d love to read, there are a bunch of hobbies I’d like to get into and a whole lot of interests to pursue and I think right now is the perfect time. Portuguese seems like a good start for someone with a bilingual background in Spanish.
To Portuguese or Not to portuguese? Well, seems like the perfect time. Funny where inspiration is found.
