After getting fired by my corporate job, three weeks before my NYC sublet lease expired, I decided, hastily to run away. PR was the furthest I could get without worrying about working laws…so I went for it, and honestly, I love it!

But…I need to learn Spanish, and idk if I’m too dumb or too old…but three years in and I can’t do very much. I don’t have many friends, I can’t afford to live in the tourist zone (I wash dishes) so making friends without Spanish is near impossible. Any advice? Anyone my age that has mastered a foreign language?

Any tips or ideas appreciated. Thanks!

Hey spanish is hard. Just try basic vicuabulary, little by little youll be able to do more complicated ideas, it feels more dificult to learn a laguage when old because by default we use more complicated ideas and vocabulary, so going back to basics feels lacking.
