Who you spoke with and why you chose that partner- I spoke with a woman name janet and I chose her because she was also trying to learn spanish
What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?-I didn't get to learn much from her because once I said that I was in school she logged off the chat.
How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goals?-One thing that this did help me do was get a conversation started
What 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)
-I was able to get a conversation started even though this person logged off the chat, and I'm going to continue to chat with people and help bring my confidence up of speaking spanish.
- Who did I speak with and why did I choose that person?
-I spoke with a guy who name is Luis Angel. The reason why I chose to speak with him is because he's from Mexico. All my other conversations were from people who lives in Spain.
- What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?
I learned that he's a very happy person. He's the type of person that always has a smile, no matter what. He doesn't like to be sad. Even at the toughest times, he wants to smile.
- How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?
Well, my goal was to be natural with my conversation, it worked kind of well, but not really. During the time that I was talking to him, I was super happy and it was interesting to talk to a person who was also happy. What a coincident! I tried to natural with my typing and not having to double think about what to say, but when I did that, my sentence didn't make sense ): it sucked, but he corrected me.
- What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?
I think I did well on pushing myself to say the right things.
- What specifically do you need to improve on?
When I try to say a lot, I get all mixed up. So maybe I should stick with what I know instead of jamming a whole bunch of words together.

Goal: Asking follow up questions.
I spoke to Elizabeth from Venezuela and I picked her because like I said in class back then, I am more comfortable to speak to girls than speaking to guys. I also like her because she's nice and we're both learning how to speak different language. Me spanish, and her english. Our conversation was pretty brief because she said that she have to help her mom on something. She's pretty proficient in English already so she pretty much helped me the whole time.
Talking to her helped me to speak spanish sort of fluently. I know I still have some problems on how to construct a good and grammatically correct sentence. But she helped me a lot and she even helped me to use some new vocabularies.
The conversation was not awkward and kind of monotone-ish. Both of us are asking and answering things rather than one person doing the whole interaction.
I still need to speak Spanish fluently.
Goal of this conversation: Learning about culture

Ella-Yo nunca había estado en Puerto Rico, así que no sé. Pero por lo que mi familia me dice es que es hermoso y espero visitarlo pronto.
Yo-Esta Bien. Gracias Chica!
For my second conversation I again talked to Brianna Perrin.In this conversation I learned more about Brianna's culture. She is Puerto Rican and I learned about some of the traditions that her and her family have. I also learned some of the common foods in her culture. When I was coming up with the questions I realized that I forgot some basic words so this conversation was a nice refresher. I'm proud that I could keep the conversation going with saying more than just "esta bien" even though I did say it once. My improvement for the next time is to ask questions that will carry on a longer conversation.
My paper is a picture of a bird, maybe a owl but that is less important. My colors were orange and green.

Matar = Molestar
Movil= Cell Phone. "Un celluar" es muy extraño in Espana
Ni fu in Fa = No me importa
Tio= Un hombre
¡Venga, hombre!= es similar de "Cool story bro"

Y si voy a una fiesta, lo bailo. La gente aveces me preguntan de donde apredi eso. Y digo que aprendi como bailar salsa en Puerto Rico.

I learned that my partner believes her culture for dance is traditional. They really appreciate salsa and that is like a very famous dance in Puerto Rico.I am proud I have gotten a first hand experience from someone who has lived in Puerto Rico and seen these type of traditions going on. I will ask more follow up questions.

Conversation Project: Week Two
Antes de Conversación:
What will your topic of conversation be?
Unsure. I just want to play with it and see where it goes.
What are you looking forward to about this conversation?
Again, I want to keep the conversation going and see if I can speak less English and replace it with Spanish.
What are your nervous about?
Last time, my pen-pal said I spoke fine however, I am still not certain I could ever be up to par with her.
Después de Conversación:
Who did you speak with and why did you choose them?
In class, a couple days, I found Alexis Correa and we continue from last week's convo.
What did you learn about them?
She still does not believe that I am allowed to speak to her while in Spanish class.
How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your goal?
We exchanged information so, we can talk whenever.
What did you do well according to your goals?
Umm, well, we did not have much time, but I did make her laugh, which I am sure it is an added plus.
What specifically do you need to improve on?
More questions, of course.
Partners Name: Theadora Farah
City y Country: Philadelphia, USA
I was having a hard time the last two weeks keeping the conversation going so that is my big goal for this week. I think I did that well.
Who you spoke with and why you chose that partner
I spoke with Thea a senior at SLA. She is one of my friends who is fluent in Spanish and I felt comfortable talking to.
What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?
She is reading a new comic series, I learned that talking to someone you know vs someone on livemocha is easier to keep a conversation because you know the basics about them.
How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goals?
I realized that my personal goals would be hard to gain through speaking with other people so I created a new goal of just gaining confidence and learning to keep a conversation flowing, which I was able to do.
What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations? What specifically to you need to improve on?
I did well though I was trying to do the “Do not use word reference challenge” and failed after only a little bit.
I'm finding it difficult to get to my more complex questions because even though I'm writing in Spanish the person on the other end usually takes a bit to answer not including the minute or two it takes for me to come out with the question or response.
It's not working as well as I'd hope. I really would like to ask some more difficult and interesting questions. I think to help this I could write the more difficult questions down in advanced so I'd have a template or a base to go off of. I think this will help me steer the conversation in the direction I want it to go and make the conversation move on faster so I can accomplish those things.
Here, you can see that not only do we keep the conversation in Spanish the entire time, but I also try to delve into my topic, which was the film culture. My partner, who's a college student in Spain, told me that he and his friends try to go to movie theaters as often as possible, as they use films and the culture as a momentary escape from reality.
I was highly intrigued by his statement, and I thought it was a highly interesting analysis.
