Lydia and I have decided on a mechanism to learn Spanish. First things first, it's crucial we vastly increase our vocabulary.
Every week, starting this week (#2, 2012), we point at objects, think of activities, just tell eachother the time, every day life if you will, up and until we collect 50 or so, and find the Spanish translation.
Then, at the end of the week (this is going to be the exercise over the weekend) we learn those ~50 translations and start talking jibberish - It'll be a mixture between Spanish, Dutch and English, I imagine.
The more words we learn, as our vocabulary grows, the more we are (going to attempt) to actually speak Spanish. We should thus be able to learn about ~2.600 translations a year, and while our pocketsize translation dictionary holds about 37.000, we should be OK for the next decade and beyond :P
