Intermediate side of Beginner? I speak broken & limited conversational Spanish.
Anything! Long walks while labeling things. Bowling, trips to the YMCA, potlucks where Spanish is spoken, books read, movies/tv is watched. Going to places where the employees speak Spanish would be fantastic! Any learning about the history of Spanish speaking people in WA would be interesting. Visiting Spanish speaking communities socially or on a volunteer mission of sorts. Anything!
My fathers family is from Mexico. For personal reasons, he opted to raise us as typical American kids. Consequently, we did not learn Spanish though we spent a lot of time around it but as is the case with language, when it isn't used... A recent family vacation to Mexico has rekindled my interest for the language & culture.
Spain & Mexico
I'm Laura Samaniego-1/2 Mexican, I have a BA but home w 3 kids. I've been craving an opportunity to embrace a culture I adore but, regretably wasn't raised in. To meet others who love the culture& language as I do would be Wonderful!
These people are wonderful! Friendly, welcoming & patient! I can't wait for the next meet up!
