In other news, I started my Spanish classes last week. Two days a week I teach English to Spanish speaking people and then on two other days my English speaking self learns to speak Spanish. The language department in my brain is so confused! My students are really enjoying my meager efforts to try out my new Spanish on them before our classe starts in the morning. I think having six or seven people to try my new vocabulary out on might be very helpful. I am exactly where they are in my skill level too....at the bottom! It was somewhat surreal last week when I reviewed the English alphabet with my students and then the very next night I had to learn the Spanish alphabet. I totally understand why they confuse the letters "a, i, y, b, v, g...." . I now do the same thing. I am finding it a bit easier to learn Spanish than French, maybe because I hear so much Spanish on a weekly basis or because I have already studied one language so a second is a little easier, who knows. Maybe it is because I am practically a genius....nah. I have also totally embarrassed myself in class by answering in French, oops! I think I will be speaking Spenchlish, a new hybrid language of English, French and Spanish.
Live it up for the next few days everyone! Lent begins next Wednesday. I need to figure out what I will be doing for Lent this year. Any ideas? Don't think I'm going to make the mistake of giving up drinking again! Haha! I will be spending the last few days of the Mardi Gras season with my daughter, her husband and the grandsons....partying with a few characters!
Stay tuned....here's one hint.
