I have lived in Spain nearly 2 years, and thanks to a very good home tutor twice a week, I speak relatively good Spanish for the time I have been here. I can speak present, all forms of past, future, command,subjuntivo etc etc. The most frustrating thing I find is not being able to use it as much as I would like to. My "Si = yes" was merely a joke,no offence intended, in fact, I am always interested in some new words, but the question is...Will I actually ever need them?? I have an extensive English vocabulary, but will I ever have a similar Spanish one? I think not, as I doubt I will ever need some of the lesser used words (like thimble), in any conversation. If I dont use a word very often, its likely I may forget it, and like I said before, I am a little starved of Spanish conversation, or when there is one, with the business I am in, its usually about the same subjects anyway.....so is there a limit to how far I can actually get in my knowledge of the Spanish language? Or , do I need to go and live somewhere more recluse where there are few or no British people?..
