I have been taking college classes in my spare time, considering the Navy is paying for them, i figured why not get a degree.

as of October this year I was 2 classes away from getting an associates degree through one of the Navy’s partner colleges. I needed 1 required course and one elective. I figured for the elective, I would pick something that would be required for a bachelors and get it out of the way.

Well, let me tell you folks.
Foreign language through distance learning is about the worst mistake I have made since starting college classes. Hopefully I don’t fail and have to take another class just to graduate.

Why distance learning spanish in San Diego? I didn’t realise Spanish was still a foreign language. :D

What you need is a boot legged copy of Rosetta Stone’s Spanish CD.
