We are still attending school and finish off on Monday and hope to leave early Tuesday morning to Lago Atitlan for 2 nights and then on to Antigua. Even though the last few days have been tough studying Spanish, I know a lot more now than when I first arrived at the school. I may not be able to hold a grammatically correct conversation, however I can string words together to get my point across and understand a lot more than I can speak. With time, I hope to expand my vocabulary so that I can communicate better. Going to school is intense as we have 1-on-1 instruction so there is no such thing as sitting at the back of the class and messing around, as I would have done when I was back in school. My Maestra (teacher) tests me every morning on the vocabulario and verbos (vocabulary and verbs) that we studied the previous day.
