Hi,

I just wanted to ask if it sounds natural in English to say that I have a "persistent interest" in Spanish drama or it would be better to use the more conventional "solid interest", whch, however, is too trite?

    I don't think either of these is trite - in fact they both sound slightly odd.

    A persistent interest is one that won't go away, even if you want it to.
    A solid interest is one that cannot be shaken.

    The word I would choose might be lifelong, deep, passionate...
