I’ve been learning a lot! I’m thoroughly enjoying my classes. The white guy is weird. He questions EVERYTHING in class and I’m just like learn it or don’t! We had a few lunch dates together which was cool. But I enjoy eating by myself lol.
I found an audiobook from Audible.com to help with my espanol. I would like to get the alphabet and numbers down. The audiobook also has key phrases you would use in most situations. I haven’t really tested it out to know how effective it is, but I’ll let you know.
I’ve been using Uber to get back and forth to class everyday. I need to quit being lazy and take public transportation but I’m spoiled now. Not being on a stinky, crowded bus/train everyday reduces my anxiety and stress so I will continue to do it. But yesterday I don’t know if the guy was stereotyping Black folks or what. He asked me if I could sing and I didn’t think anything of it. Not until someone on one of the Facebook groups I frequent said something about being asked that all the time when in different countries. I just told him no and left it at that.
I got my first rain today. It’s currently raining with huge drops. I’m glad I have nothing hanging up to dry, just some clothes soaking. My neighbors have a comforter hanging up I feel sorry for them.
I’ve been on the prowl for a Spanish partner. I’ve tried Plenty of Fish with pretty much no luck. Although there’s a Nigerian guy that wants to meet me. I told him I’ll meet him Sunday I guess. He’s a teacher and been here 4 years but yet isn’t fluent in Spanish. So we’ll see how that goes. I’m invisible here just as in the states…don’t know if that’s good or bad. Should I try a club? lol
I plan to do a free walking tour on Sunday which is all in Spanish. I probably won’t understand a thing but immersion is the only way to learn. I’ll definitely post pics.
