Partners Name: Robert/ Mauro
City y Country: Peru/Buenos Aires
(The people on Livemocha would only talk to me a tiny bit.)
you spoke with and why you chose that partner.
spoke with a man on Livemocha, he messaged me because he was learning English
and I am learning Spanish. Both men messaged me to talk so I just went with it.
did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?
learned Mauro lives in Buenos Aires, and Robert wants to learn to speak
did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goals?
more I speak in Spanish the more comfortable I become, Mauro knew no English so
speaking to him forced me to only speak in Spanish. This was helpful but difficult and I found myself looking at word reference a lot
specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations? What
specifically to you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did
and what you would have done or said if you could do it again)
spoke only in Spanish and tried to keep a basic conversation. This needs to change, these conversations are awkward at best and using Livemocha is harder then expected. I want to figure out how to hold just a basic conversation before I try and learn anything about their culture.
