In 2012 I began learning Spanish. I arrived in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic knowing no more than ‘Hola’. On my second Friday at school, all of the students took an excursion to the local market. This excursion was for fun but also so that we could practice interacting with the locals. We were told ahead of time to ask lots of questions and that our homework for Monday was to write about our experience. You can read my first Spanish blog post (my homework) here.
Here’s a little photo essay for you to enjoy.
