 The first day here you can take a placement test to see which level of spanish class you should be in. Most of the others opted to not take it bc they never had Spanish before so they just wanted to start in the basic class. Well me, being the stupid curious one, just wanted to know how I would do so I took the test. Apparently I'm a good guesser because I placed in the intermediate class! I didnt know this til after a few days when I realized it couldn't be basic because the teacher conducts the class only in Spanish and we don't use the little book they give us. There were two other people in my class from Poland but I guess they didnt like bc they never came back after 4 days so It's just been me and the teacher. When its just one on one like that it's much easier for me to understand Spanish and for some reason she thinks I speak Spanish really well. At school however it's a different story. The teachers think I can't speak any Spanish and I sure as hell can't understand a damn thing when there are 40 kids running around screaming. Today I was sitting down organizing some folders while the teacher was explaining a lesson and I look up and all the kids are looking at me! I have no idea why because I don't know what she was saying. I think it was something about helping others and she was saying how I help her or something like that. The kids always come up to me and ask me questions and i feel like I can get away with just smiling and saying si, but Im afraid one day one of them is gonna ask if they can run around naked and I'll be like yeah si, go ahead and then when they get in trouble they'll be like well Jenny said I could! Let's just hope this doesn't really happen!

I gotta go buy my bus ticket now for Playa Tamarindo! Definitely the best part about this place is I can take a weekend trip to the beach for under $100! 

Hasta luego amigos!
