New Challenge : Spanish

En français
I always feel like I would have to learn Spanish one day out of necessity. Well that day have come, on the 21st of November I'm going to Peru for holiday.
So the new challenge is to learn as much Spanish as humanly possible or to have enough Spanish skills to be able to communicate with the local population.
I also want to work a great deal on this challenge before the beginning of November as I will have an other challenges starting on the 1st of that month (see detail later).
So I'll try to update how it goes regularly (difficulties and such).

Here is the list of my Spanish material for beginning:

-Pimsleur Spanish (3 months)
-FSI language course (basis and programmatic) available here
-A very old Spanish text book from my father
-Almodóvar's movies : Volver, Todo sobre mi madre
-Other movie : El Laberinto del Fauno, Nueve Reinas, L'auberge Espagnole (but that one contains a lot of -French and English)
-Music : Mano Negra, Manu Chao, Ska P (5.36h worth, minus the english song I'll find in it for sure)
-A small French-Spanish dictionary
and of course everything I can find on the web such as this interesting blog ¿Donde andan estos?

Spanish is probably the only language I never intented to learn for some reasons, so that's quite limited but that's probably going to be enough for the next month and a half.
