I live in a community with a very strong Hispanic influence. Learning Spanish wasn’t only a hobby for me but also a means to integrate with my neighbourhood. But I work 2 jobs and my busy schedule never allowed me to join any formal class. Thanks to PeppyBurro, though, I don’t think that’s a handicap for me anymore.
PeppyBurro’s mnemonics are a huge blessing! Spanish Vocabulary Bible has made me more comfortable with Spanish than all my years at school put together did. I bought this book last month and consider that one of the wiser investments of my life. The word-bridge tricks hit you like a rock and before you recover, know a bunch of new Spanish words like you know your own shoes.
My girlfriend is Puerto Rican and I have PeppyBurro to thank for it. I discovered this site well over a year ago and encouraged by its articles, made an immersion trip to Puerto Rico within a month of starting off. Met my girl there and we’ve never looked back. My Spanish today is awesome compared to non-existent only a year ago.
