¿Habla Usted Español?

"Solo un poco, pero yo estoy aprendiendo." Ha! How you like me now!

As I'm preparing for my trip, I've been brushing up on my Spanish. I took 1.5 years in college and to quote Meatloaf, "It's all coming back to me now." As is common when learning a new language, I understand its written form much better than its spoken form. For that reason, I have been listening to Spanish language CDs in order to familiarize myself with the pronunciations and rhythm of the language. All this preparation must be working since I dreamed in Spanish last night. I was gonna try out my new skills with the Spanish-speaking girl at the checkout register last night, but chickened out. I'll try again today and let you know what happened.

I'll also take a handy dandy little phrase book that I picked up at my local library. It covers everything from everyday phrases and colloquialisms to eating out and health. Between my good-hearted attempts and cuteness, communication will be a breeze. for me, ya'll.
