Just a Quick Note

May 27, 2015

Last week, I mentioned that we’re going abroad for a while (sans kids! WOO!) for a little bit of a holiday, and that I had the wife write this year’s letter to the resort.  It seemed like a good way to have her practice her Spanish, and she’s far more confident with written Spanish than she is with trying to speak the language.

Last year, when I wrote the letter, I got a response back in English – a surprise, really, since most of the staff at the hotel seemed perfectly inclined once we were there to talk to me in Spanish.

This year, she got a response back in Spanish.  With minimal help from me, she was able to make her way through the letter – I was mostly helping with vocabulary that she’s not learned at Duolingo, and helping with grammatical points she’s not yet gotten to (like phrasal future, which made perfectly good sense to her once I explained it).  So she’s very proud of herself, and I’m thinking she might be more inclined to practice this time without sticking to the rote phrases she’s been used to using…

Of course, half of me is now wondering if they’re going to use English with us at all, but hey, that’s half the adventure, right?
