    When I was stationed in Panama during my time in the Army, I picked up Spanish by watching telenovelas, talking to taxi drivers (who were really cool with teaching it), and I dated a woman who didn't speak English at all (long story).  I even watched Baywatch subtitled in Spanish on AFN and read a lot of magazines.  A year later, and I was pretty close to fluent.

    It's been a while since I've had to speak it on a regular basis, but I can follow most conversations and still speak some when I need to.
