I’ll be honest, the language isn’t coming on too well! Admittedly we haven’t started lessons yet but I’m beginning to wonder what we learnt in London. Nothing (and I mean nothing) is coming back to me. Okay, so it’s not that disasterous but it is pretty bad.
When out and about, it’s often easier to rely on hand gestures and the English spoken by the locals rather than try to speak Spanish myself. Vlad is much more advanced and I often find myself relying on him in communication “emergencies” too. I need to break out of that habit - I’m not going to learn if I don’t force myself to give it a go. I’m also hoping that when we start lessons the more formal learning environment will help bring back what I’ve learnt already and it won’t all have been in vain. It is fairly depressing at the moment.
