Studying Spanish in Antigua, Guatemala.

Yo quise aprender un otro idioma por mucho tiempo. Yo estudie francés en escuela pero yo no aprende nada. Muchas personas yo conozco saben muchas idiomas. A veces yo estoy celosa. Yo aborrezco hablar en inglés solamente. Cuando yo decide viajar en centroamérica yo quise comenzar en Guatemala y estudie español por 1 mes en Antigua. Hay muchos escuelas en Antigua. Yo escogí La Academia de Español Sevilla porque yo leí en mi guía turística. Yo pensé la escuela parecía bueno.

Yo quise aprender Español porque yo voy a viajar en Central America. Muchas personas no habla inglés aquí. También me gusto viajar en España y yo quiero volver algún día.

En Antigua yo estudie Español por 4 horas cada día hace 4 semanas y media con mi maestra Gloria.
Yo no pensé yo pude aprender Español. Ahora mi Español es no bueno y es difícil para mí comprender. Pero hace 4 semanas yo no se nada y ahora yo comprendo y hablo mucho.

Entonces yo aprende un nuevo idioma.


I’ve wanted to learn another language for a long time. I studied French in school but I didn’t learn anything. Many people I know know many languages. Sometimes I’m jealous. I hate that I only speak English. When I decided to travel in Central America I wanted to start in Guatemala and study Spanish for one month in Antigua. There are many schools in Antigua. I chose The Spanish Academy Sevilla because I read about it in my guidebook. I thought the school looked good.

I wanted to learn Spanish because I am going to travel in Central America. Many people do not speak English here. I also liked traveling in Spain and I want to return one day.

In Antigua I studied Spanish for 4 hours every day for 4 and a half weeks with my teacher Gloria.
I did not think I could learn Spanish. Now my Spanish is still not any good and it is difficult for me to understand. But 4 weeks ago I do not know anything and now I understand and speak a lot.

I learned a new language.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
