I can't tell you how many times I have been asked the question "Do you speak Spanish", and every time I say the exact same thing " yes, and no" LOL.
What I mean by that is yes, to some people I would say I speak Spanish, but to others I would have to say no. My hubby and mi maestra tell me I don't give myself enough credit, but really? When I can understand and translate ALL the words in a song - that is when you will hear me admit "Yes, I speak Spanish". Said with conviction. The only problem, is I sometimes can barely understand the words in English!!! LOL!!!
Anyways, this topic came about as we had the pleasure of my Maestra visiting from Los Mochis, Sinaloa - she moved there about 6 months ago and is teaching. She actually hasn't' been my maestra for almost 2 years now, and I am just so embarrassed at the level of my Spanish after losing her :(
Sooooo I spoke with hubby and maestra over the weekend and have decided I am finally going to be taking some classes!!!
So far I have found 2 schools of interest here that offer "group" lessons. Amerispan, and Berlitz.
Apparently they offer group classes of no more than 6 students. However, I have a hard time believing they actually fill these "group" classes every week? At this point I am assuming I will need/want about 6 weeks of classes, 5 days per week. I certainly hope I won't need more than that.
As I continue looking into these classes - I will let you know how my search goes. I am hoping to register before summer! Here's hoping!!!!
If any of you have had the chance to attend one of these, or can recommend another school I haven't looked at - I'd LOVE to hear about it!!!
Wish me luck amigos as this is one of my '09 resolutions!!
