Spanish or Castilian (español or castellano in Spanish) is a Romance language in the Ibero-Romance group that evolved from several dialects and languages in the northern fringes of the Iberian Peninsula during the 10th century and gradually spread through the Kingdom of Castile, becoming the foremost language for government and trade in the Spanish Empire. Modern Spanish developed with the Readjustment of the Consonants that began in 15th century.

I'm not good enough to be conversational, but I have taken quite a few classes already. If I get to know people who speak it (and will force me to talk to them using Spanish) then I'll likely reach my goal in time. Fingers crossed! Gotta get done in time to be fluent for my trip to Spain.
Yesterday my father gave me a book I might read in Spanish, only it was a bit too difficult (I was practically reading the dictionary instead of the book)and it turned out to be the third book of a trilogy, something my father hadn't noticed when he brought it from the library. Well, I guess I'm going to read it anyway, and I can put this book on my list of 40 books I have to read!
