depende rin sa Latin country yung usage.. Kasi may mga Latin Countries, lets say from South America na ibang terms yung common sa kanila compare to that of Spain. For example, Como te llama and Cual es su nombre. Pareho meaning nila, "what's your name" pareho ng thought. Cual es su nombre, if I'm not mistaken, is commonly used in Spain.

Ako din like ko matuto nito. My husband knows how to speak in Portuguese and a part time na din as translator. Ang dami clients naghahanap sa kanya (he works abroad) and somehow, nanghihinayang ako sa pwede sana kinita namin dun. hehe! ;D Somehow, kapag marunong ka ng Portuguese you'll understand other language na very near na din (like Spanish) kasi nagttranslate din siya kahit Spanish e. Halos ganun din daw naiiba lang sa pronunciation.

Instituto de Cervantes.
You will learn faster, and get to belong to a group you can practice speaking the language with.

beautiful - guapa (person); preciosa/o (place)
handsome - guapo

sister - la hermana
brother - el hermano
mother - la madre
father - el padre
school - la escuela
hospital - el hospital

I'm sorry - Lo siento
What do you like to eat? - Que te gusta comer? (informal) Que le gusta comer? (formal)
What are you doing? - Que estas haciendo? Que esta haciendo?
What are you eating? - Que estas comiendo? Que esta comiendo?
What are you watching? - Que estas viendo? Que esta viendo?
What time? - Que hora es?
Where are you? - Donde estas/esta?
Who's with you? - Con quien estas?

It would help if you invest in a good english-spanish dictionary because it seems that you are studying the language though for a short term, you'll be using it a lot. Barron's is great, especially the edition with sample sentences.

I just answered the ones above because they are already complicated since verb conjugation is already in the present progressive tense.

Sis search mo Little Pim sa youtube, meron silang foreign language instructions nakakatuwa. For kids nga lang kaya start ka sa basic. I let my son watch this para matuto sya mag spanish.  ;) They have other languages too.

i took up spanish in instituto cervantes just for personal growth.. ganda ng training and mabilis. though napabayaan ko na, ill take my next level if i have vacant time again.. upto 21 levels, last parts include proficiency in writing as well. recommend it sis if you really want to learn. meron din silang film showings for free, you could borrow dvd's from their library etc.. sabi nga nila constant exposure is the key.
versatile din yung oras nila just incase you're working. as far as i remembered, my 4days session (2hours each session) cost 1.7k di ko na lang sure kung magkano ngayon and pano na ba rates nila. hopefully malapit lang sa'yo yung lugar nila.
What I want is just like what women wants.
