🇬🇹🌴✨ I’m officially going to be studying full time Spanish in Guatemala for 9 - 10 weeks beginning in October! (Definitely 9, but I want to see some friends in that region before Christmas, but if I need more time, I’ll give myself the extra week).
Although I was born in the beautiful country of Panama 🇵🇦, I grew up in the United States where nobody spoke Spanish. I feel a bit sad with other Hispanophones because it becomes obvious that I’m not fluent in my first language, and I want to communicate with as much expression as I can in English. 😅 But, I’m hoping that 9 - 10 weeks of intensive 5 hours a day of 1 on 1 classes plus volunteering and living with a host family will do me wonders.
I’ll DEFINITELY be documenting my progress in Spanish. I’m purposely not going to do anything else but live my entire life in Spanish because I figure that now’s the time to buckle down and master this beautiful and lively language that is Spanish. 🌴 🇪🇸 🇬🇹 🇲🇽 🇨🇺 🇻🇪 🇺🇾 🇵🇦 🇨🇴 🇨🇷 🇭🇳 🇪🇨 🇵🇾 🇨🇱 🇵🇪 🇬🇶 🇧🇴 🇸🇻 🇳🇮 🇩🇴 🇨🇺 🇵🇷 🇦🇷 -
