Yesterday was my first day of school. This year is going to be so different than previous years because learning more Spanish is much different than teaching children English. I spent much of my morning talking with my teacher in Spanish. It is challenging, because I know what I want to say, but my vocabulary is so limited in my second language. I also know how to speak in the present tense, not in the future or past. When my teacher was talking to me, sometimes I didn´t understand what she was saying because of my limited vocabulary. Besides learning a lot of Spanish, I think I am going to gain much empathy for my students as well. While a student here, there will be multiple opportunites to take field trips, too. My first excursion was a walking tour of the things nearby with one of the directors of the school. She showed me good places to get pizza and hot chocolate, as well as a big market I might frequent if I need something.
