How much Spanish do you know already?

I tested an FSI 3+ when I completed Peace Corps service in 1989. I have experience as a bilingual teacher and have taught both ESL to Migrant parents, as well as Spanish to Anglo adults in community education. I love Spanish as my second language; I have dreamed in Spanish and am usually complimented by native speakers.

Where and how did you learn your Spanish?

Please see first profile box. Peace Corps, Dominican Republic 87-89, public ed. bilingual experience,

Why do you want to learn more Spanish?

Native speakers always teach me the nuances of the regional dialects. I enjoy dreaming in Spanish which inevitably happens when I spend time thinking in Spanish.

What else can you tell us about yourself and about your other interests?

I enjoy the outdoors and nature and can transfer most of this love and knowledge (BS Environmental Science) in Spanish.
