What is your Spanish language level? (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Native Speaker)

Intermediate side of Beginner? I speak broken & limited conversational Spanish.

What kind of activities would you be interested in combining with Spanish conversation?

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!

Why did you decide to learn Spanish?

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.

What Spanish speaking countries have you visited?

Spain & Mexico

Introduction

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!
