Spanish & Esperanto  - 
 
Hola, I am going to try to learn Spanish on my own, With help from the internet and hopefully from this Community. Maybe I was going about this all wrong, But I started out trying to learn how to conjugate verbs. Life and my oldest son said I was crazy, And that I should learn some basic vocabulary first.

What with the Spanish speakers out to you think? How would you go about learning Spanish? Would you start with maybe 5 words a day to you got some underneath you and built up a small library of words, then move on to basic phrases and then finally into conjugating verbs? Thank you very much

Good sensible approach, but there is no replacing knowing a FEW verbs and how to conjugate them.    I'm not recommending necessarily learning the RULES for conjugation, but rather simply memorizing some SHORT list of verbs so you can form sentences.   To Be, To be able (can), To know, To see, To think 
For me those are fundamental to communication.
Try to imagine what a baby learns first and focus on picking up those verbs first.  They learn by modelling their parents.  If you memorize those conjugates, you'll have a good foundation for practicing your sentences, which will help dramatically in remembering your vocabulary words.  Then when you get to the point of learning grammar rules (which children do not learn until long after they can speak and know probably 1000 or more words!), you'll have a good base to understand the rules.

I would like to learn Spanish and would be happy to reciprocate by helping those who need help in English.

Another victim of the new American business model of doing more with less.

The used book stores in my area charge top dollar for used paperbacks; too bad really.

+Jeff M Sometimes I'd leave with a shopping cart piled high with books. .25c for a paperback and .50c for a hardcover and 20% discount for students, veterans and seniors.
