Achievement: Self-learning Spanish .....

California has been carved out of Mexico, so its only too obvious that Spanish is an important language...afterall, its the second language here...I thought learning a few words will be great.....

During the a decade and half-long biology studies, I have learned above 1,000 Latin words, so why can't I learn Spanish? I tried and and my vocabulary is growing slowly but consistently...mastered most of the common words like, caballo (horse), naranja (orange), bosque (forest), casa (house), castillo (castle), chica (girl), pan (bread), pollo (chicken), huevo (egg) and leche (milk) ....

It gives an opportunity to post some of clicks with corresponding Spanish names...of course, I took little help from Google Translate...
