My partner's name was Johnny from Colombia. We spoke in Spanish
over video chat and he also spoke English very well, so if I had a
question I would send it to him over a text chat. We did drills of
conjugation and he also spoke to me about the culture in Colombia. I was having problems with saying things in the
future tense when I would mean the past tense. I was happy because Johnny
knew a lot of English and assisted me regularly. At some
What did you learn about your partner?
learned that Johnny lives in Colombia and is still in college studying computer engineering. He lives in a dorm and enjoys hanging out with his friends, hiking, playing guitar and drinking wine. Johnny also sent me a remake of the Black Eyed Peas song "I got A Feeling" it was really good, and I enjoyed listening to his music.
What did you learn from them?
learned that a lot of the music that I listen to in America they listen
to as well. The thing is that I think the music takes a little while
longer to get to them. I also learned how to conjugate irregular verbs
in the future, present and past. I also learned about the culture of Colombia, many of the people are huge fans of Shakira.
What did you learn about yourself?
I learned that when I begin to screw up a bit, I mess up things that I already know because I get nervous. I also learned that I need to relax and not take things so seriously when I'm speaking and if I make a mistake it's okay.
What were you surprised about?
was surprised that we had such a long conversation but I was also glad
that we got the opportunity to talk and that he agreed to help me out.
What are you proud of?
proud that I was able to hold a conversation in Spanish for a good amount of time.
