Ep. 52 – Lost In Translation

Show Notes

Hola Todos!

We catch you up on our week even though we’re under the weather and our voices show it. Ben had a great week and shares what he does for work and what an exciting time it has been! We won a car!! A Tesla Roadster! If you want to see Ben in the flesh and hear all about it check out his Youtube channel Teslanomics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzDgCTI2JMA

But aside from that, we chat how we incorporate our practice and learning even when life gets crazy busy.
It’s about finding small ways to continue when not actively advancing your learning.

Like reading News in slow Spanish and Conversing daily en Español.

We have a funny story where an important message about our son Jack got lost in translation.

Jennie shares what she has come across while disciplining Jack in Spanish and how expressing in a new language is challenging.

We also break down how and when we use Tu and Usted form.

Enjoy the show!
