At 3 pm I met Seidy at the Copey Learning Center for my first Spanish lesson with her. I learned the verbs Ser and Estar (two verbs which translate as 'To Be' – each used in specific scenarios). I know the present tense for each, but often get confused with the past and future tenses. Today, Seidy taught me both the past and future tenses and I now have to memorize them and practice so they become second nature. It was a good session and tomorrow morning I will be meeting with Adriana. It feels good to get back to speaking Spanish. Lately, with teaching English, it seems I'm not getting a lot of Spanish practice anymore. And now that school is out for two months, I want to make sure I continue to improve and not fall back.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
