Will my current level of intelligence be affected by prolonged states of confusion and lack of communication :-) lets hope not...
my situation is as follows...Pre-season for the Spanish National Futsal league stared yesterday...and two amigas speak english...relatively fluent, im oh so grateful as i speak un poco espanol. We have been running around on the beach and up and down the sidewalk.When Jordi (the coach) tells us what to do, i either look to the girls who speak eng or just guess...i dont like being a burden so most of the time i guess...
Regarding the apartment situation things are a little more difficult...Imagine living in a house with two elderly people (its there apartment for July and August) and will move back to Barcelona on the 30th of August...anyway they dont speak english at all...problem number 1...i find myself saying vale (ok) and si (yes) ALOT...i catch on every now and again what they are saying...especially when there words are followed by actions...i cant complain as they have been looking after me. tortilla patatas anyone :-) will definitely be taking the recipe home...whenever that may be...
I thought my saviour would be the Brazilian girl who arrived last night. Her name is Roma...great energy...what else would you expect from a Brazilian :-) yet Roma dosent speak english either. so its time to learn Spanish Sally QUICK smart!!!! The club are paying for my spanish lessons which begin in September. yay!!!!
This smorning when i was trotting along in my own little world during our warm up...i thought to myself this would have to be the hardest thing i have put my brain through...and if i can conquer this...i would like to think i can do anything...its hard enough when you are trying to prove yourself or show who you are in a new environment when you can speak the language!!!! anyway...good test of character...i just hope i maintain the attitude required and dont go running home :-)
somtimes i feels like im ´cottoning´on but reality is i just seem to be getting even more confused. eeekkkk hang in there right :-) i put together this little paragraph of words i have been looking over as a reminder...of where i have come and where i want to get to...i have pinched a few of the words from others and mentioned some before...few new additions in my new language :-)
