I started a 4-week Spanish Language Intensive course on Monday. Meets at ‘Academia Hispano America‘ for four hours a day, and it is rigorous. Did I mention the 50 minutes we sit in each session are Spanish-only? They put me in Level 2, and I am already at the end of what I can fake and what I cannot. There’s a reason you start at Level One and go through all the basics. I stood on my head in the courtyard during one of our breaks, and I think that helped. Or at least it helped remind me that I can practice asana, etc. just about anywhere.
Learning another language is really hard. And bi-lingual hubby, who smoothes the way for me here on a daily basis- is away. VERY away in Europe. And SOMEONE left a very small and completely adorable kitten on our doorstep. She and the cat we brought down from the states got me up at 4:00am today, wanting to play. Charming.
I have no time to write, let alone think, especially about words in English. So, no blogging for awhile. Instead, it’s time for flash cards and dinner conversations with an 11 year-old, who is also learning Spanish.
I’ll be back!
