The joy of learning a new language
Last Wednesday, I started a new chapter in my life. I started lessons to learn an entire new language: Spanish! This mainly because Andrea’s native language is Spanish but also because it would be very handy to be able to communicate much better with her family. And finally because I love the challenge of learning a new language.
I found a school in my city called Fuentes, they offer in classes of around 9 people total, for 9 lessons (1 per week so 9 weeks). They offer different levels as well. I decided to start with A1.1 level first (the basics). I already know quite some Spanish words. But it is always good to have a refresher.
They offer classes all the way upto level B2. And also offer a quick path of 5 lessons in 5 weeks.
The classes are given by a native Spanish speaker (ours is a teacher from Venezuela, and she knows the Dutch language pretty well already. The lessons are given in my Native language: Dutch. And we are given homework as well. The classes will take around 1 hour each and home work between 3 and 5 hours a week.
It is really fun to learn a new language, the classes are very interesting too and we have video’s, sounds and even music clips to keep the class entertained. I can’t wait for my next lesson!
