Año - Year

Well, here it is. A new blog. Like I don't have enough to do. For years I have bemoaned the fact that of all the foreign languages I've been exposed to during my life I speak none of them well at all. My plan with this blog is to remedy that.

I'd like to learn how to speak Spanish this year. If you learn one word a day at the end of the year you won't have a huge vocabulary, but you'll have more than you started with. It's close enough to the beginning of January to count as the beginning of the year, so here I begin.

The word that occurs to me today is the word, "year". I remember it is año.

I see that I'm going to need a boat load of websites to help out with this. So, the hunt is on for good study aids for me and whoever else is inclined to visit as we learn Spanish. I think it would be interesting to use the word of the day in a sentence too.

I'd like to say, "Happy New Year." And, because I don't know anything right now I went to Alta Vista and used their translation services. Happy New Year is Feliz Año Nuevo in Spanish.
