Bethany Winkels from the United States shared her thoughts about being in Argentina and studying Spanish.
I’ve now been in Argentina for a month. Some thoughts:
- Learning another language comes in waves – it recedes and crashes into me depending on the day. I’m learning to legit speak Spanish, and it’s awesome (and exhausting, and life-affirming, and etc., etc.)
- Experiencing, learning about, and being surrounded by a new culture feels like having a microscope and telescope to look at life/self/the world at large. As Anton Ego taught us, there’s nothing quite like perspective.
- I have amazing friends and family – distance means loving differently not less or more. (Keep it up team)
This has been, for a variety of reasons, and one in particular, one of the best months of my life. If we haven’t caught up recently, I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
- An Alfajor is a life changing dessert. Search one out. Trust me on this.
