Spanish Immersion – Watch The Most Vulnerable Moments!

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!
Spanish Immersion - Watch The Most Vulnerable Moments! This time it is all on the line for me, with my Spanish Immersion experience. This time it's all on video, with journals, skits, presentations & more! Read more on

As you know I completed a 2 week program with Pueblo Español and I wrote all about it.  (hop on over and read it here)

What do I feel most vulnerable about?

I am just going to get it all out in the open right here and now, so I don’t have to brave any comments or judgements.  Apparently I am a little more soft-spoken when I am speaking in Spanish, so that is likely because I am less confident.  Especially when it comes to giving presentations in front of the group.  In time it will all get better, so I know that.  It is still tough allowing the world to see and hear me.

My second thing is I haven’t been completely on video in many years.  I am usually in control of the filming and editing, thus I am in control of how much of my body is shown.  Well in these videos, there were others taking videos and exposed far more than I would like.

Okay now that i have all of that off of my chest, it is time for the video!

Watch the Video of my Spanish Immersion Experience!

I am going to warn you it is a very long video, but I wanted to share as much as I could with you.  This is just in case you are considering immersing in a Spanish conversation course with Pueblo Español too.  The video is a mix of me speaking Spanish and English and it is about 15 minutes long.  I will lay out a timeline below, just in case you want to jump to a certain part.

I have some video journals, skits, activities, tours and presentations.  I cut many of the items short, just to give you a feel.  My final presentation on the second to the last day was over 10 minutes long, I think I just shared a few minutes with you.
