My name is:
My new level is:
Approximately how much time do you dedicate to working on your Spanish outside of class?
One hour at most
On average, how many times per week do you take classes @ Pura Buena Onda?
What role has Pura Buena Onda played in helping you improve your Spanish & advance to the next level?
Pura Buena Onda has provided a comfortable, friendly environment in which to converse about relevant topics. Through the expertise and encouragement of my instructors and fellow students at PBO, my ability to speak Spanish has greatly improved. As a retiree, it has served to unlock vocabulary that has been locked away in the recesses of my mind. I have also become more aware of the correct usage of verb tenses.
What are some of your favorite resources?
Spanish and Latin American literature, whenever the spirit moves me!
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Perhaps my path at PBO is unique, although I am not sure of that. I have a Masters degree in Spanish language and literature, which I obtained in 1977! I am a dinosaur! Nonetheless, I used Spanish on my job for twenty-five years after that, and I avail myself to opportunities to practice Spanish whenever they arise. I am so grateful to recall and utilize former knowledge, to have the company of others who are also seeking to improve themselves, and to experience the joy of learning. Indeed, I have so much more to learn, since I believe fluency in any language is a life-long process.
¡Felicidades a Nancy por avanzar al nivel C2! ¡Bien hecho! We are so happy to have you in our online Spanish classes!
