In Madrid with no connection

Hello there Ladies & Gentlemen

I am in Madrid! It feels so funny to be posting from here but I just wanted to let you know that things got a bit crazy right before I left and I did not get a chance to post the winners. I am so sorry for the delay. I have had a hard time finding a good connection for my laptop and am now posting from the office where I am teaching my classes. As soon as I am able to find a wireless connection in the next few days, I will post the winners. For now I am enjoying the beautiful Madrid weather & the absolutely gorgeous Christmas lights that just went up everywhere around the city centre. Enchanting! The Christmas Markets are starting to open up their little stalls and we had the most exquisite little pastries in a beautiful little¨panaderia¨last night…. No complaints here.

Teaching in Spanish is actually proving to be easier than I expected… thank goodnesss…. and the ladies here are very gracious and forgiving of my lack of vocabulary.

I will write more as soon as I have a chance. Right now Im off to have a bit of cafe au lait and begin this days lessons.

Hasta Luego—-

    Hola Joanna
    Me encantó el curso que nos diste, era mi primer curso fuera de casa y me encantó. He visitado tu web, he conocido tu historia, la historia del nombre de tu empresa, tienes mucho sentido del humor. Ha sido un placer conocerte.
    Espero que tu experiencia en Madrid, también haya sido buena.
    Si no te escribo en inglés es porque tu español es mejor que mi inglés.
    Un abrazo,
