I am feeling pretty proud of my Spanish. That doesn't mean I'm awesome, or even good at all, but I am proud.
I asked Scott "So, what do you think of my spanish so far?" (Obviously fishing for a compliment...)
His reply, "Well, you are fearless."
At first I thought "What is that supposed to mean??" but now I am actually really happy with that!
My vocab is weak.
My conjugations need a lot of work.
My tenses are totally off.
But, if I have a question or need something... I get my answer!
I just say things in a very round-about way and people generally understand me and help me. On Wednesday when Scott was gone for 8 hours, here are the things I was able to do:
-Check out of our hotel room.
-Find Norma to give me my apartment key.
-Ask how much a taxi ride costs from the bus station to a specific place
-Order lunch for me and T (this involves asking for a fork, high chair, more water please, a box to go...)
I wouldn't say I can "get around" in Spanish yet... but every day I am a little closer!
