Interaction – study from the best!

25 08 2009


Escharle Ganas – in Spanish it means to try your best. I’m living into that phrase. After a summer of traveling around the globe, I have come full circle and have returned to Chihuahua, MX to learn Spanish at one of the finest institutions south of the border – Interaction. It has become so world renown that two of my old students have graduated from the program and I walked into classes this morning to surprise three more of my old students.

This fall I will be immersed in Spanish with four other students, four days a week. Greg put me in a host family that has an extra room upstairs and they give me as much privacy I want and it’s only a fifteen minute walk to the school. The host mom and dad (Minerva y Rueben) are empty nesters and Minerva works for a law firm dealing with domestic violence against women. Rueben is retired and does all the cooking in the home. He’s an excellent chef. Time to exercise like crazy this fall lol.

I had kept going to the language school a secret from the girls and it was such a fun way to surprise them this morning as I was the last one to walk into the classroom and yelled “Who’s ready to learn some Espanol?”. Welcome to Chihuahua!

School’s in session. As school resumes in the states, it’s the same here in Mexico with thousands of children in their uniforms and backpacks being dropped off at their respective classrooms. Chido!

By the way, the school is building a reputation. All their students have tested out of a minimum of nine hours of college Spanish. 80% have tested out of 12 hours.
