My Last Spanish Class

Lights decoration near Puerta del Sol for Christmas.


Yes...I am barely into the language and now I have to end it??!! Really really sad..
Today, there were only 7 students; two Indians, one Bangladeshi, one Romanian, one Chinese, one Brazilian and one Malaysian (me!).

About 30 minutes before the class ended, my teacher informed us that there would be a long holiday and the class will recommence on the 9th of January, 2014.

I was lost...so deep into my thoughts.

That means I had to tell the class that I will not be coming until maybe after summer...or en la primavera? No...I'm not going to buy a pair of new shoes in Primavera...not that shop. La Primavera means spring in Spanish. 

Yes..I just knew the meaning of primavera now.....hehehe.

Anyway..my teacher asked me my reason, and my shortcut answer was because of my job..partly the tour guide stint in South Korea and partly because of the visa application. Can't avoid it anyway. I will be going back to Malaysia on the 4th January 2014. Alone....T__T

Arghhhhh.....but I just have to  look at everything with a half-glass-is-full mindset so when the class ended I gave my Spanish book away to the Romanian grandmother as an early Christmas gift. 

She was touched because she could not afford to buy the book but I couldn't help myself not to give the book to her because she was such a fighter! She was a grandmother of nearly 70 years old and she still has the motivation to learn. What a cool grandmother!

The funny thing was...I speak very little Spanish but every time she sees me entering the class, her face lights up and she happily pulls me aside for a chat in 100% Romanian language. I know nuts what she talks about but I felt contented when I see her smile. 

Oh well..what about my study then?

Hmm...loads of FREE courses like in SpanishPod101 and many other sites to study from so I have little worries. Plus my husband is there to correct my mistakes hehe.

Okay then...Happy Navidad everyone! 

Navidad is Christmas in Spanish...I also just learned this word. Hehehe..because I saw many advertisements on the television and our favorite channel is La Sexta. They spin many ads for four to six minutes for every commercial break and I swear at least 50% was perfume related ads for lalalala surprise..Navidad!
