8. Preliminary research for Latino topic paper (25 pages)
Pues = well or so then in Spanish.
Pues...if you ever want to have your confidence in a second language dashed, just go to a bilingual class and confidently sail out with the Spanish speakers when they divvy up for discussion.
I wasn't TOTALLY lost, but it was pretty close. But everyone was very nice and very welcoming, and didn't laugh at my awkward attempts at contributing to the discussion.
It's going to be a great class, but man, what a brain drain.
Speaking of brain drain, time to brainstorm some topics for my 25 page research paper. I believe that Spanish for that is something like, "¡AY, AY , AY!"
Today my online basics statistics course begins. I'm kind of excited about getting my brain back into math mode. I took basic stat in undergrad so I'm hoping this will be a nice refresher (although I doubt it will be as entertaining as statistics with Carl Main).
Tomorrow my other class meets for the first time - I'm really excited about this one. It's a bilingual course on Latino families in schools/communities. I'm not exactly sure HOW bilingual it will be, but all the assignments will be in English (phew!). This course is the first of its kind and I can't wait to get back into my Spanish groove.
Anyone need two professional mess-makers? They come with solid references, they don't require pay (just feed them unearthly amounts of eggs, peanut butter/jelly, & strawberries), and they work fast.
Let me know.
