Conversational Spanish

January 10, 20091 min

This week I began conversational Spanish lessons from Carolina Mery-Wood at Pura Buena Onda.  Before the Holidays, I met with Caro for a short one-on-one interview\conversation to gauge my skill level.  She told me that while my vocabulary was excellent, I needed to improve my listening comprehension – I was between a beginner and intermediate.  She said it was up to me if I wanted to be the star pupil in the beginner class or perhaps the weaker of the intermediate students.

I had my first class today with six other people and it was a lot of fun!  I was a bit anxious about my ability coming into the class, but I just dove in.  It was not as bad as I imagined it to be.  This is going to be fun and I am really looking forward to next week.
