This is one of the first big assignments that I completed for Spanish and I feel like it is a good example of how I am approaching proficiency in my language control, because even though I make some mistakes, you can still understand me.
This is a link to the first presentation on food that I made for Spanish and it shows the proficient level of comprehensibility that I had even at the beginning.
This link is to my presentation on flan , it is a great example of my proficiency in vocabulary and structure and I am quite proud of it.
The above video is, in my opinion, the best assignment I have ever completed for Spanish class. This makes it a great example of my personal growth, especially if you compare it to some of my earlier assignments.
Reflection: I am now half-way through my 5th year of traditional Spanish schooling, and I am enjoying myself like never before. This class involves a super encouraging learning style that is very compatible with my own style. I have become a lot more comfortable simply talking in Spanish this year, in the past I had a tendency to get hung up on not knowing a word and I would be unable to even finish a sentence. Now I have much less fear about messing up which has allowed me to get in more practice than I would have otherwise. In the next few months I hope to spread this comfort into other areas of my learning, in particular I would like to be more confident in my ability to conjugate verbs, especially mid conversation. This is something that I've always struggled with and I feel that I am currently in a good environment for this to happen. Overall I am loving this class and I am excited for the next few months.
