Staying present

Day one back in spanish classes went better than I expected. I am getting my ears back and one of our friends said she could hear that our speech was improving. Which is great considering the server at lunch on Friday said, “Please just speak in English.” Hurrah!

I also realized that one of the best things about studying a language while on vacation is that it requires you to stay in the present. At least for now – as that is the only verb tense we know! Not a bad way to be while traveling.

Taking a small break from study


Do you think I can use that as an excuse for not learning the other tenses?

    I think it would be a great exercise to spend a day using only present tense in English. I spend way too much time in the conditional, and in complex constructions of the past.
