My work of full time language study continues through the month of May. That being said, the work I have been called here to do has also begun. My predecessor will be exiting the scene on May 1st, so I need to be up to speed on everything by then. Mornings are filled with Spanish study in the classroom, while afternoons are spent in my office, learning all about my position as Regional Communications Specialist. Evenings and early mornings are for Spanish homework and memorizing projects, personnel, plans and upcoming events for each of the 22 countries we serve in Latin America and the Caribbean.
My days are packed with learning, but I do have some opportunities for fun as well. Recently on a trip to Fun Times Language Institute, from my cab I saw the interesting scene on the left below. Then I got to the school and part of the cultural lesson for the day was a short introduction to local dance.
