Week 26: Perfection Pending

I am doing a lot better with Spanish, although sometimes people can’t understand everything I say. I want to know Spanish perfectly; NOW! I think I need to study much more about patience.

We have been teaching a family from Congo. Only the dad speaks Spanish and everyone else speaks French. It makes teaching a little difficult. We´re always uncomfortable because the culture is different and we don´t know when we are doing something wrong. The dad is a teacher at the nearby university. He talks a LOT and he took the pleasure of informing us that as servants of God, we are doing a very bad job. We are boring, bad teachers, and he has learned nothing. No offence of course. lol So he gave us a nice long lecture on what we should do differently. We were pretty distraught.

My companion and I are both ridiculously stubborn, which makes me mad. This week we had a few rough spots...and a really long Thursday. We both went on strike and it was absolutely ridiculous. Woofta.
