5 months and counting…[video]
So much to say. My sister and I went to Madrid and Italy over Christmas and New Year’s. I now have enough students that I can relax a bit regarding my bills (the money I make from teaching a pair of brothers in one class and their dad for a couple hours pays my rent alone). I have some new job prospects, and a new plan regarding living in France. But before I talk about that in detail, here’s a video of how I sound speaking Spanish thus far in my stay.
I fail at embedding, so here’s a link: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v311/reve119/?action=view¤t=200423.mp4
It’s about 6 minutes long and as I say in the video, I’m talking about how challenging it is to try to learn a language fluently and how hard it is to befriend the Spanish (not just for me, foreigners in general). In my opinion, my accent is not as strong as the average American here, nor is it Andalusian, which is intentional lol. I would like it to sound less American.
