What drives me crazy is that have to learn Castillian, then adjust it to Andalucian, and then re adjust it to my neighbours in the village who speak something completely different.

We have been going there for three years, and I can understand (usually) most of what is being said to me, especially if the speaker is being considerate.

My two neighbours tho, lovely old dears tho they are, I still cannot comprehend ni un puta palabra.

The advice given to just throw yourself in is very true. Your mistakes will usually endear you to people, sometimes in ways you didn't intend.

As when my wife, to whom the waiter was pointing out the chicken, said to him "Me gusta polla mucho." The guy's face was a picture.
