  1. I like the poems, too; and if I get around to it, it is a great way to memorize the Spanish lines. You might try using hymns and songs, too, since we already know many of those by heart and can easily sing the words in Spanish to help learn them. I have always found that I remember whatever I sing. You are really working very hard and doing a good job!!
