Along with getting to know the Spanish culture, the program consists of learning the Spanish language. Learning some Spanish prior to my arrival has assisted me during classes. There are two more days remaining in this course, and I have learned a lot of new vocabulary and rules in the Spanish language that I did not know previously. Also, I have been practicing verbal communication with native speakers in order to reach one of my set goals.
Moreover, within the first four days of arriving in Spain, I began taking my notebook and pen almost everywhere I went in order to write new phrases and words I encountered.
As a result of my persistance and determination (via observations, signs and communication), I was able to add words/phrases to my vocabulary; words/phrases such as “madre mia” (mama mia!), “que mono!” (how cute!), “digame” (tell me), “se llama una tarjeta” (it’s called a card), “verano” (summer). These are just a few of the words I learned while in public places.
