I live in a household where my housemates are both Vietnamese, the only downside of this is the fact that they are able to have conversations with each other right in front of me and I have no clue what they are saying. I absolutely hate it when they do this but not for reasons you may think. I hate it because it reminds me of the fact that I can only speak English, simply put I get a little jealous of the fact that they can effortlessly float between two languages. I’ve always wanted to be able to speak another language since I don’t class patois as a language so when Rosetta Stone came to us with a challenge I jumped straight in. Read to find out what the challenge entails.

The challenge is to use Rosetta’s immersive learning technique to see if I can learn a new language in 180 days. Myself and Tahirah have stepped up to the challenge and have decided to attempt to learn Spanish within the next 180 days. We’ll keep you all up to date with our progress over the course of the next 6 months but until then please join me in wishing myself and T the best of luck. Estaremos hablantes de español en ningún momento. For information about the challenge or if you’re interested in joining us on our quest to learn a new language then please visit the Rosetta Stone website.
