We’ve been taking classes at Frida Spanish School for a week and I can happily say we’re fluent now. Yes, we’re that smart.
Ok… Not really. But it has been going really well for both of us. We took a test the first day and were placed into classes according to our appropriate levels. Auston and I are in different classes but we both have excellent teachers. Our classmates are from all over the world (France, Germany, Brazil, Korea, Japan, etc). It definitely makes for an interesting four hours of class.
We’re also staying with a host family while at the school. We live with a wonderful woman named Araceli or Ara as we call her. She has been very helpful giving us advice on how to get around in the city and what to do around the area. She’s also very patient with us as we attempt to speak our butchered Spanish to her. She has a 3 bedroom home and we each have our own room.
Anyway, this is what a typical day looks like for us while we’re in Mexico City studying Spanish for 2 weeks.
Every morning we wake up and Ara has a delicious (and healthy) breakfast waiting for us on the table.
After we wash our dishes, we finish getting ready and head to class.
We catch a small bus a couple blocks away. It usually takes us about 40 min to get there. Traffic is terrible! Auston forgot to do his homework one day and quickly finished it on the bus. Reminds me of high school!
Then we have 4 hours of Spanish class.
In the evenings we’ll either do homework, hand wash some clothes and/or go out to eat if we don’t feel like cooking.
And of course we also spend some time sterilizing a few bottles of water for the day. Auston bought us an awesome sterilizer that uses UV light so we don’t have to buy bottled water every day.
