hopes for my summer in Spain
I am so excited to finally be here! This is my first time to Spain, and Europe, and I am truly enjoying learning all about the culture and ways of life here. Like most of us, my main goal for this program is to greatly improve my speaking skills. I have used a substantial amount of Spanish here in Madrid, but I hope that I will be forced to use it on a more regular basis once we get to Salamanca. Also, I hope to have a lot of interaction with the people that live in Salamanca, including those I will be living with. I am getting a little nervous for the homestay, but am overall very excited for the experience!
