#359: ¿Habla Usted Espagnol?

So here I am with a hundred things to do before we leave for Spain. Make that ciento.  Where shall I begin?  Oh. I'll think I'll clean the bathroom. And the bedroom.  I can't stand a messy bedroom.

I feel like my 19-year-old self during exam week. Must clean my room. I simply can't study in an untidy space!

It appears that 50 years of growing-up haven't made a dent. Now I have all the time in the world but I still have a talent for procrastination.

At this rate I had better concentrate on one useful phrase: yo non hablo Espagnol.  I think I am going to need it.


  1. Actually, it's "no," not "non." Also, you don't even need the "Yo" so long as it's quite clear that the last letter in "hablo" is "o."

    I also highly recommend "¿Habla usted Ingles?"

    Have fun!

  2. Excellent advice! I am, in fact, counting on lots of clever Spaniards speaking English.
