I guess that makes sense

Steve, the other volunteer in my house, is a much more diligent student of Spanish than I am--or is trying to be--and has started watching TV, such as The Simpsons (dubbed) or subtitled things like movies, with a notebook to write down things he doesn't understand or has just learned from the subtitles. I haven't been watching anything with Spanish audio unless I'm on a bus or whatever, because it's been too much work to be any fun.

I was pretty startled to discover how much more of the Simpsons dialogue I could understand than five months ago. I'd noticed the same was true of the English Department meeting (which I last attended in April).

Anna says it's cute that I'm surprised.
