Spanish

Tonight David and I had our first class of Spanish 1, courtesy of Mpls Community Education! We meet every Tuesday night through the first of June. I've never studied Spanish, so I'm very excited about it--especially because although my Italian allows me to understand a fair amount of Spanish, I can't speak it at all (yet!).

It was fun, too, to be in a class of adults (almost all of them close to my age) learning like children, with worksheets and games. I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but I guess I thought it would involve more old people... or young ones... or something. Anyway. It's a fun group; my pareja for most of the activities was a bike-riding medical student a bit younger than me who was wanting to brush up on her Spanish, mostly for clinicals. I think it will be good times.

Oooh, I am jealous. I want to do a Spanish class with Veronica when she's a little older, so she can learn and I can re-learn.

That sounds so cool! I wish I could do something like that, but the community activity around here hovers around nil.

Oooh, Spanish with the bebé is an excellent idea! I wish I'd grown up speaking more than just English.

And Leah, I think you should totally start a community activity! Seriously, I think it'd be way fun to teach one of these classes.
