How Spanish got its ñ – the story behind that “n with a tilde”‘ on YouTube


2015 in review

2015 was an excellent year for Maria and her Spanish School Avancemos. She was busy throughout the year but even more important: She is absolutely thrilled by all the encounters with her students and the fun and pleasure she gets out of her classes. It gives her great pride to see them all progressing, not withstanding were they come from (contacts from 49 countries!)

Many thanks and hope to see you all again in 2016: ¡Avancemos!


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,200 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 37 trips to carry that many people.
