Lost in Translation
So in my last ditch effort to learn some Spanish before I leave (in only 7 days now), I've been reading blogs written in Spanish by random people. (I've included a map of where Malaga is in case anyone wants to know where I'll be studying abroad.) I think it has actually been helping me. I have learned some slang and can read Spanish relatively well. The only bad thing remains: I can't speak it. They talk too fast, I comprehend too slow. I am so screwed. On a brighter note, another reason to blog: for the benefit of those trying to learn your language (The easiest to understand are the ones with pictures). I also stumbled upon the linguistic fun page! And a bunch of sites with funny stories about translating boo boos. I love reading those!
