My Spanish tutor had something to say

She told me that I speak and understand Spanish very well in her opinion. She said I only have a little bit of difficulty with conjugations and with feminine and masculine sometimes. But, I’m good. I thanked her profusely.

I needed to hear that because I have next to zero confidence in speaking with native Spanish speakers. I’m always afraid they are going to get tired of hearing me struggle with Spanish and start speaking English to me. That’s my biggest fear.

There’s no better way to learn a language than immersion. Living in a country where most people speak said language is best, or at least talking to native speakers.

My English used to be rubbish even in my early twenties. Until I found an American pen pal and I also started watching Hollywood movies without subtitles or at least with English subs. Ever since joining this forum, despite cognitive damage due to sz, my English has tremendously improved.

They actually appreciate it when people make an effort to speak their language. Don’t worry! They’ll be happy you tried even if they do switch to English

Idk. Whenever they switch to English I take it as a direct insult of my bad Spanish.

Or maybe they simply have a competing desire to improve their own English. Wouldn’t you know.

I can certainly take that into consideration too. LOL.
