S: Spain Trip May 2008

FC: EUROPE | May 2008 | GSpain

1: During May 2008, I decided to go and visit my Aunt in Spain with my friend Mallory. We decided to visit my Aunt and go and sight see different regions in Spain Durante el 2008 de mayo, yp decidi ir y visitar a mi tia en Espana con mi amiga Mallory. Decidimos visitar mi tia e ir y ver ve las regiones diferentes en Espana. .

2: While in Spain , we went to Barcelona, Seville, and Valencia. I have taken Spanish classes since I was in 7th grade.. I thought that going on these little trips in Spain, I would have enough knowledge and vocabulary to get where I needed to be by reading maps and conversing with the natives. Mientras en Espana, nosotros fuimos a Barcelona, Sevilla y Valencia. He tomado clases espanolas desde que yo estuve en septimo grado. Pense que pasando estos viajes pequences en Espana, con fuera mi tia que tendria suficiente conocimiento y el vocabulario para conseguir donde debi estar y leyendo mapas y conversar con los nativos.

3: Due to the fact that in Barcelona they don't speak Spanish they speak Catalan. Trying to get to our Hostile using taxi and trains.was very difficult. It was difficult because it was in a completely different language that I had no understanding of. Debido al hecho eso en Barcelona, ellos se pusieron hablan espanol ellos hablan catalan. Tratar de llegar a nuestro albergue juvenil utilizando los trense y el taxi frustraban muy debido al hecho que yo no supe catalan.

4: I was getting very frustrated and discouraged in Barcelona. I knew that i could speak in Spanish but they weren't speaking it . So i convinced myself that it wasn't me and that I wasn't stupid. It was the simple fact that I didn't know the language they used in Barcelona. I was trying to be optimistic about our next sight seeing trip which was to Seville.. While in Valencia we decided to take a bus tour. So we could determine all the important and famous sites were in Seville.. Fui frustarado muy y fui desalentado en Barcelona. Supe que podria hablar en espanol pero en ellos que no habla lo. Tan yo me convenci que no mi y que yo no estado estupido . Fui el hecho sencillo que yo no sabe el idioma que ellos utilizaron en Barcelona. Trataba de permanecer optimista acerca de nuestra promxima vista que ve viaje en Sevilla. Mientras en Sevilla nostros decidimos tomar un viaje en autobus tan nostros podemos determmine donde todos los famosos sitios importantes y estuvimos en Sevilla.

5: While on the bus we saw this horse and carriage that took you around certain parts of the city. Well, in Seville they don't pronounce their "s". Which caused some problems because we couldn't figure how much this ride was going to cost us because we couldn't understand what the man in charge was saying. Mientras en el Autobus nostros vimos esta caballo y el coche que tomaron usted alrededor de ciertas partes de la ciudad. Bien, en sevilla ellos no pronuncian su "s" que causo algunos problemas. Nostros no podriamos figurar cuanto el paseo iba a costar porque nosotros no comprendimos su dialecto.

6: This was starting to get very frustrating and discouraging. I purposely went to Spain to practice my Spanish. How could i practice my Spanish when no one so far was speaking the certain type of dialect of Spanish I knew. The only place so far seemed to be in Madrid where I could understand what natives were saying and speak to them. We still had one more place to go which was Valencia Esto comenzaba a consequir muy frustrado y desalentar. Fui deliberadamente a Espana para practicar mi Espanol. Pero, como puede practico mi espanol cuando nunca hablar hasta ahora el cierto tipo de dialecto de espanol que supe. El unico lugar parecio hasta ahora estar en Madrid donde podria comprender que nativos decian y hablan con ellos. Nostotros todavia tuvimos otro lugar para vistar que fue Valencia. .

7: In Valencia, it was a little easier but still very frustrating and discouraging. We decided to go on a bar tour in Valencia. Luckily we had a tour guide that spoke English and understood what we were saying. This was very enjoyable. We went to a bar that had tons of different kinds of beer from all over the world. I was starting to feel better about not being able to speak with natives like i waned. En Valencia fue un poco mas facil pero todavia muy frustrando y desalentar. Decidimos pasar una vista de barra de Valencia. Por suerte nostros tuvimos un quide de la vista que hablo ingles y comprendio lo que deciamos. Estofue muy agradable. Fuimos a una barra que tuvo cientos de clases diferente de cerveza de todo el mundo. Comenzaba a sentirse mejor acerca de nopuede hablar asi como desee

8: As our trip was coming to an end. I started to look back at my trip. I got frustrated and thought i was stupid for a good part of the trip. I couldn't understand how I wasn't able to understand more and speak better. Como nuestro viajhe se acababa. Comence a mirar hacia atras en mi viaje. Fui frustrado y pense que fui estupido para una parte buena del viaje. Yo no podria comprender como yo no pude comprender mas y hablar mas. | But, I sat down with my aunt and discussed the frustrations i was having. She reminded me that Spain like the United States have tons of different dialects and it takes awhile for someone to understand all the dialects. Once my aunt had said that i felt better that I wasn't stupid and that i could speak pretty well Spanish, i just didn't know the dialects. I now understand and can relate to students who have trouble with learning English. Pero, yo me sente con mi tia y ciscuti las frustraciones que tenia. Ella me recordo eso, Espana como Estados Unidos tiene toneladas de dialectos diferemtes. Toma un rato para alguien comprender completamente los dialectos. Una vez que mi tia me habia recordado de eso, yo sentia mejor y que yo no estado estupido. Podria hablar espaonol bastante bien, yo justo no sabe los dialectos. Yo ahora comprendo y puedo relacionar al estudientes que tiene aprender de problema ingles.
