After the end of work today is was panicked - How if the world am I going to find time to study 30 minutes every day? What is the world did I get myself into?
Then I remembered I was in Miami. So I turned on the radio. Thanks to the traffic I got in a good hour of listening to Spanish talk radio. It was interesting to recognize the change in my ears over the hour. What sounded like a random stream of sounds with an occasional word I recognized at first, started to actually sound like a language with patterns that I could catch and occasional phrase from. I figured out "health insurance "seguro de salud, and "la prensa lo ignoro" the press ignores it.
It was exciting. I hear about the importance of input in the teacher trainings I listen in on. I guess this is why.
