This time it is all on the line for me, with my Spanish Immersion experience. I am sharing far more than I have ever been comfortable sharing with all of you, so I will admit I was a little nervous hitting that publish button. This time my experience and performance is all captured on video, and guess what you can watch it below!
Be prepared to get a glimpse of my thoughts, heart, soul, feelings, frustrations and progress. I will share with you my personal experience attending a 1-week intensive Spanish course in Spain. This isn’t your typical classroom course, it is 8 days and 14-15 hours of conversation each day! This is like no other program I have experienced, so I am going to spill the beans and let you know what I think about full Spanish Immersion in Spain.
It can be a tough position being a parent. As a parent, your first instinct is to protect your child. Protect them from themselves, protect them from others, and protect them from the realities of how the world actually works. There are those times when it’s necessary to let them fail; when the consequences of failure means a scraped knee, or ever-so-slightly bruised emotions. It’s under the guise of control, but letting go is tough.
Exploring northern Thailand together as a family can be a culturally enriching experience for kids and adults. Most of the tourist highlights and adventure activities for kids can be found in and around Chiang Mai city, but for a more authentic and cultural experience, you’ll need to venture further out into the countryside. This is where the real northern Thailand is.
Many people are asking about summer plans for Wagoners Abroad, so now you will get the official answer! This time we are going local with an Almuñécar summer! Yep you got it, we are hanging around Almuñécar and southern Spain. But that doesn’t mean our summer won’t be full of adventure.
I have to admit I have been a little gun-shy over the past several months with writing for the blog. Yes, we have been doing some here and there, but nowhere near how we used to keep you up to date. Recently I have been reflecting on a few things and I’ve been amazed at the self discovery and thoughts.
Everything you need to know about the schools in Spain
Over the course of the past 4+ years, we’ve had many parents ask us questions about how we educated our kids in Spain. Through our consulting and through this blog, many of you have submitted some excellent questions about how the Spanish Education System works. Since it’s such a popular topic I decided to write an eBook. As I was writing it, I couldn’t help exclaim:
Wow! I wish we would have had this book before we moved to Spain!
As of a week ago, we got the thumbs up to go to Pueblo Español! The plan was for me to go late July and for Alan to go in October. Well, plans are already changing since I first drafted this post, so see what is happening now!
Guess what time it is? It is time for us to give you an update on what we have been doing to improve Speaking Spanish!
Remember our initial post, back at the end of November, with the goal of making it to Pueblo Español? Oh and the video update of us speaking Spanish at the end of February? Well, here we are at the end of May and we figured you were due another update of our progress. Yes, there is another video. As much as we don’t like speaking Spanish on video, it kind of needs to be done. Thanks to all of you for asking questions and holding us accountable.
