    She could teach you Spanish and you could teach her Yorkshire, e.g. "By 'eck lass that be a fine fo'c'sle you 'ave there"

    Could be worth going to a tutor? The desire to not let someone down may help prevent other things from taking priority and disrupting progress?

    JC, Years ago I had a PC program that was designed for those who wished to learn the Spanish language, it was a bit too in depth for what I wanted but it was very good for teaching the pronunciation of words. Perhaps such programs are still available. Alternatively, does your local council run free evening classes?

    There are cheaper ones CJ, Amazon have a Collins starter CD for £10 or a more in-depth one for £50, both get some fair write-ups.
