La    educacion

Okay. I admit it. This web page is an assignment for a college class--in case you couldn't tell! But seriously, I enjoyed this assignment a lot and I think that my page is pretty darn cool. My name is Karrie and I am a Spanish major at Worcester State College. That's in Massachusetts. I hope that this page is at least somewhat interesting to you. Not many people like to learn another language but most of the links for languages are interesting and have fun games too! If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at --- Enjoy!
