This assignment was difficult for me. I had more trouble than usual trying to figure out how to address my reader in 2nd person. One thing that I’m noticing though is that my Spanish vocabulary is improving by leaps and bounds. I’m being forced to spend a great deal of time in conversing with the other students in the on-line forum and their Spanish is absolutely flawless.
I’ve been speaking Spanish for over 20 years and this is really challenging for me. Although I’m getting agitated through the process, I’m loving the results. So typical huh?
Attached are two pdf’s of the story that I created. One is in English and the other is in Spanish. The title of the story is “Becoming a Champion.” I think I did alright but it is definitely not my best work. Part of this process is putting yourself out there so that’s what I’m doing. Feels a bit unsettling.
English readers let me know what you think about the story and Spanish readers let me know what you think as well. If any of the Spanish readers feel like editing or correcting any of my errors then don’t hesitate. I’m looking forward to hearing all of your critiques.
I’m going to go have a tall cool class of water, stare up into the sky and do nothing for a little bit. I’ve earned it.
