I had no choice but to learn Spanish while studying abroad in PR. After college, I was able to keep it up by translating for my students' families and other teachers in the school. Now I'm in a school with 1-2 Spanish speakers, and they're not in my class! I'm worried I'm falling out of shape.
I majored in it, so I can get through novels without a dictionary. I can converse and understand despite strong accents. I stayed in PR for 5 months and have taken several short-term backpacking trips to Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Panama.
Hola mi gente!! Soy Allie y quiero conectarme con ustedes. No entiendo nada del "vosotros" pero quizas pudiere sobrevivir.
