Spanish Immersion Is The Kick In The Pants I Needed

After a few years of living in Spain, both Heidi and I should be further along with our Spanish.  She’s actually much better than me, and I won’t even discuss how well the kids do.  It’s both frustrating and a bit humbling to have them correct me when I’m saying things wrong.  So, I have taken a trip to Ronda, for a week of Spanish immersion.  I know we already live in Spain, but this is different and we’re partnering with Entrelenguas to help me improve my Spanish.

Spanish Immersion is the perfect way to either jump start learning Spanish or give you the kick in the pants like me, so we are off to Ronda Spain. Click to read more on WagonersAbroad.com
