This post is going to be very short today, because I’m out partying.
I’m celebrating 50 today, a real landmark for many people.
It’s a landmark for me too, although this is certainly NOT about my age.
I can assure that I am NOT 50!
So why am I celebrating?
I’m celebrating because, after several months of hard work, this is Post #50 on speakoutinspanish.com, this website.
I’m so excited, because I never dreamt I could get so far, but especially I never dreamt that I would have so many loyal followers, all interested in language learning and in learning Spanish in particular.
I really hope I have helped to motivate some people to start on their fabulous language journey and others to perhaps pick up again where they left off.
Three of my greatest achievments over these last few months, after growing a lovely circle of new friends, have been
to have been given the opportunity by Mohamad Karbi to publish an article on his “Around the World” site about one of my first language melt-downs when I arrived in Spain for the first time. (You can read that post HERE for a bit of a laugh!)
to have been chosen by the famous language coach Benny Lewis, of FluentU fame, to write a post for his website about my experience of learning a new language using the “Language Buddy” technique through Skype.
to have one of my articles re-blogged on Cristian Mihai’s popular site. The article was How learning a language is like learning to drive. Get your ‘L’ plates now.
All of these opportunities earned me many more friends and followers who are still loyal to me even now.
But now for the next stage of this weblog for learners of Spanish…….
Some of my follower friends have suggested I put together a few of my more PRACTICAL posts, with an aim to producing a type of Spanish Handbook Series as I go along.
So I wasn’t sure because I don’t know if I can turn this little project I started not long ago into anything bigger, but I thought I would give it a try; “Nothing to lose ” mentality kicking in, I fear!
I’m trying to say that I salvaged the posts I wrote on SER , and have MERGED THEM TOGETHER to make a sort of E-BOOK.

I’m not sure if it can work, because it might be too messy and not straight forward enough for those who love traditional Grammar Books.
I would really appreciate it if you would sign up for this free set of all my posts (7 posts in total) on the verb SER, in a manageble PDF file, and let me know if you think it’s worth me continuing with a further set.
I can send the file once you fill in the form below.
Feedback is the food of motivation, in my world. If you DO give a quick look at this little e-book, and let me know if you think I’m on the right lines with this, I will gladly produce more, on whichever topic you suggest.
So as a celebratory gift, I’m making a present of this little e-book to you.
focusing on the verb SER, with lots of practical examples to work with, plus the opportunity to ask me personally about your OWN needs for conversational Spanish.
I really do count on your feedback, as it gives me the motivation to keep writing about Spanish and languages in general, trying to help those who really love languages like me, and who want to learn Spanish in particular.
HAPPY 5Oth….. WHATEVER IT MAY BE, TO YOU ALL!
