So ends the first week of Spanish School

This was a short week in Spanish class because of the holiday and I had it made because I was the only one in class, that came to end. Next week I’ll be the only one in class but the class day will be shorter. The school was only going to give me an hour and half a day with an instructor, but I didn’t think that was enough so I bought more time with the instructor so I’ll have two hours of personal instruction for everyday next week and I’ll attend a group conversation class for an hour a day; half of the time in english and half in Spanish as well as an hour or more in the language lab using their computers to practice things like verb conjugations and grammar. I will have a different instructor the one I had was very nice. I also had an exam today and I was told I did very well. As for the instruction so far has been excellent I enjoyed it and got to us Spanish a lot everyday, just what I wanted.

After class today I did a little browsing in the neighborhood of the school and there are so many bookstores some sell new books others sell used books and they are reasonably priced, I thought. I bought a Spanish version of Uncle Tom’s Cabin to try out one day when I know more Spanish. I also found a Chinese restaurant for lunch and it was inexpensive and good I had the buffet and a soda for 80 pesos. I was full after lunch and needed to rest when I got back to the hotel.

I took some photos of the school. This school has a lot of students learning English or Spanish most are foreign youngsters this term they are from Korea; a lively group of youngsters enjoying their experience living in Guadalajara Mexico.

Here are the photos;

I am going to do some review this weekend and a couple of walking tours around the neighborhood and take some photos of things I find interesting here in this part of Guadalajara.

  1. It’s good to hear your Spanish learning is progressing. You are proving we seniors can still learn new things. Sometimes I feel like my brain is already full, like when I can’t remember last week or last month.

    • I have my senior moments everyday and they are frustrating. I know if I don’t use my brain it will cease to function well and I hear learning a new language helps keep the brain working … let’s hope so.
