Se llama Kieran. Es de Inglaterra. (My name is Kieran. I am from England.)
Yup, that's me, an absolute beginner at learning Spanish.
I finally got my arse in gear to start learning Spanish after being frustrated at not knowing barely a word whilst on holiday in recent years. It's easy as anything to take up a language at Warwick because of the Warwick Learning Account making the course free for me and any other student or staff member.
The first lesson was fairly easy I guess, but I certainly found it harder than some (and hopefully easier than others). I can tell that I'm going to struggle in the coming weeks and months seeing as I've not done any kind of language learning since my bad attempt at scraping through GCSE French 11/12 years or so ago.
By the end of the first lesson, in theory we know quite a bit already, but it won't stick without a good bit of homework and plenty of work on my awful accent!
