HOMEWORK - Spanish

Well, I did all my homework for Spanish last night. It took me 3 hours and it's not due until September 1st. (I didn't figure that out until after I was done).

All my homework is done on-line and is computer graded immediately; except for free style writing that has to be graded by the instructor. I have six sentences that I composed last night that still need to be graded... :) So far I have an "A" in the class!!!!!!!

Any way, while I was doing my homework on-line Victor was sitting next to me on the couch and was listening to the audio portion with me and was watching me as I answered the questions in Spanish. I had already spent 2 hours speaking in Spanish and writing in Spanish that I continued speaking to Victor in Spanish while I was doing my work.

The look on Victor's face was funny. He knew that I understood Spanish and he knew that I could speak Spanish - usually commands to my children. He did not expect me to ask him questions in Spanish having to do with the homework. I was asking him if I had heard the on-line instructor correctly and had I answered the questions correctly. He answered me in English... :)

Once he figured out that I was speaking to him in Spanish the shock went away and he actually enjoyed the brief conversation in Spanish. It may take me a while to feel comfortable speaking Spanish with my classmates - but it came naturally with Victor. How funny!

I have Spanish class again tonight. Before Spanish Victor and I have a guitar class together. Should be very interesting.

How fun! How come Victor isn't taking the class with you? You guys would have so much fun together! And Victor would get an automatic A. :)
Jeremy really wants to learn Spanish, so hopefully classes will be in our future soon.
