Guest Post: Learn Spanish the Fun Way

Hello you sexy little lot (yes, that includes you too, my little heinous looking ex-girlfriends of the past), we’re back on the subject of learning Spanish, the very thing that kick-started this ‘ere site and got us to the point we’re at now – what, you didn’t notice we’re huge?

Hugeness aside (I know that’s quite difficult seeing I’ve already got my kit off and already bared all here on MSA), I’m keen to let my friend Andrew share some of his Spanish learning tips with you all seeing as I took last month off from delivering any progress reports and what not.

Andrew runs the ace blog How to Learn Spanish and has quite a unique take on getting to grips with the language. I first came across him and this technique after writing for Benny’s site Fluent in 3 Months. Anyway, enough about me. More about this legend.

Over to Andrew!

So What Do Spanish Women Really Think of British Guys?

what spanish women really think - British guys

You would? Wouldn't you?

A dilettante, a rebel and an exceedingly talented wordsmith I am. A pornographer I am not. Yet despite all the flack that comes with running a popular travel sex website (hint: not the one you’re reading now), I still have absolutely no problems tackling the kind of questions that travellers, and people similar to me (young guys), coming to Spain, want to know about.

And despite being indisposed myself, as I’ve well pointed out, the question is still one that I’ve pondered:

What do Spanish women really think of us British men?

So aside from jumping on one of the next flights to Tenerife, knocking back the sangria and carpet bombing every “chica” in sight of course, how is this question expected to reach a satisfactory denouement? Basically it’s dead before we even start right? As generalisations never bode well in the public domain.

Still, that being said, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun eh? And with this being My Spanish Adventure (and me being your hapless guide to life in Spain), we’re going to go right ahead and generalise anyway. Because life’s like that. You can’t stop the bad shit from happening.

Luckily for me though – and one of the perks of having the attention of several expats and travellers at my fingertips on Facebook – I don’t have to take centre stage on this one. I asked some people I know for their thoughts instead. Because vicarious living really is the best way to live after all 😉
