My Spanish is very basic right now but I am learning more and more. Today after getting picked up from my dance class, I realized that I talked more in the car on the ride home than my host dad, IN SPANISH! This was the first time this had happened! The realization that I was (sort of) able to communicate in a language that was very foreign to me just a week ago was incredibly exhilarating! I'm having the time of my life.
