My first exchange with native speakers (Emily)

... hang out with native Spanish speakers instead of with the Americans (who only want to speak English most of the time). My goal is to be able to speak Spanish dramatically better by the time I leave, and I believe this is the way to achieve that goal. Speaking Spanish inside the classroom but English in my free time will get me no where. This is exactly what our teacher, Lourdes, has told us since day 1 and I am so glad I finally took her advice.

Happy Saturday!

After a very long week, today was more than a treat for everyone. Emily, Ana, and I got ready around 2 and headed to the city for the first time!
