I really like cold winters. I can sit around in my Appartement and zip some herbal tea. It just feels amazing. Or sit around and read aand drink red vine. But then theres Winter depression. I dont like that. Im a person that needs a lot of sun so i guess i go with the tropical island kind of place. Not getting depressed there. So yeahaa haha. Im moving to India in 3 weeks so im gonna have a lot of sun there :)
I'm from the US, and I have been to about 30 countries. I've lived in Jamaica, Ecuador and Tanzania. I've been to Thailand 14 times (I think), and my time there totals over 2 years, but I've never been there for more than 4 months at a time. I travel about once per year, and go to several countries at a time, usually for a total of 6 months.
Hey i lived in Ecuador too! How old are you if i may ask?

Most people here can count in Spanish. The spelling is different though. Uno, dos, tres, kwatro, sinko, sais, siyete, otso, nueve (I can't remember the Tagalog spelling. Hahahaha!) and diyes. We also say "Kumusta ka" like "Como esta". It's also common for older people to curse at you by saying "Por dios, por santo." Hahahaha!
I like Babbel. I used Duolingo too for a while. But they need you to be online with your mobile device to practice. You cant download lessons. Thats why i choose Babbel. And the lessons are way cooler in my opinion.
Can you still learn even if you're strictly a free user?
no you need to have a subscription. I thinks its around 10$ a month. But I think it was worth it when i used to learn through an app.
Also you could watch movies with foreign subtitles, or watch movies in different language and has subs in english or with your local language.
for me its better to just watch something without any subtitles. I feel like i learn the language better without reading subs. Maybe just the subs for the language you want to learn. But not my local language.
