One thing is true about the Spanish language it protects you from the ulcer (when you learn their tongue ask Latinos how).

I have three tips what you should do before you find your Spanish soul mate:

Rule # 1.

Forget about rules (grammar).

Rule # 2.

Buy a 3000-word dictionary. That's how many words any average person, even with a large spirit, uses.

Rule # 3.

Start with cognates, the rest is a bit harder.
