I am interested in Spanish because I love to travel. More recently my girlfriend who is motivating me to learn more quickly as she has begun learning English. In any case Spanish is a growing and very important part of U.S. culture.
I took a test which said I am between beginner and intermediate. I think myself more on the beginner side (I may have guessed correctly on some questions haha). I can understand a lot when spoken slowly, and can get on fairly well in short conversations. Rapid speaking and long conversations generally lose me.
I am a transplant to Jacksonville from California (Navy). Tons of hobbies but mostly involve riding my bike too fast. I am looking to expand my understanding of Spanish and meet some new people.
