Experiential Learning Spanish Civil War & Pronunciation

Each Autumn our consulting and blogging takes a little siesta, so Alan and I take full advantage of this time to work on projects and improve our Spanish.  This time we tried experiential learning Spanish mixed with some traditional classroom time.  Yep, we are taking the slow road to fluency, but at least we are still on that road!  To top it all off, we know we are better than we were last year!

Sometimes it's difficult to figure out the current time in Spain, as it doesn't line up with the timezone. Alan describes Spain time with a sense of humor. Read more on WagonersAbroad.com
