the spanish continues

I’m eight weeks into my Spanish training and some days are definitely better than others. With almost five hours of class per day, plus time in the lab and individual instruction with my professor and learning consultant, there is precious little time to do my homework, especially with two little kiddos at home. Fortunately, I’ve learned to multitask.

After two years in Guadalajara, which one will speak better Spanish?

    This looks like the BEST way to learn a language – with an adorable bald baby zonked out on you.

    I’ve been an avid reader of your blog for a while now. I particularly liked your most recent post about technology usage at the FSI. It gives me hope that language classes won’t be as brutal as I thought they would be! I’m an FSO hopeful (just waiting to go on the register, lots of patient waiting!). I have a rather odd question that I thought you might be able to answer since you are back at FSI in training. Can you add items to your HHE while you are back on home leave, in training, or otherwise in transition between posts? (I’m a broke Returned Peace Corps Volunteer with very little possessions, but at some point I’d like to buy a nice mattress!)

    Keep up the great posts! They make me all the more excited about my FS future!

    Caitlin – you can add items to your HHE while in transition. For example, when Alex joined the FS several years ago, we put a lot of stuff in storage because we were moving into a furnished apartment. When we packed up to head overseas, all of our stuff from storage was shipped along with all the new stuff we somehow accumulated in our apartment. As far as I know, there aren’t any situations when you wouldn’t be allowed to pack out an HHE shipment. Good luck on the register!
