The weather has picked up again, and rather than comitting my Free Friday to learning Spanish I´m afraid I have spent most of the day wandering around beautiful Palermo with my roommate, drinking iced lemonaide and visting a new exhibiton at the Bellas Artes. But thats not to say I have had NO time for David and Bueno,entonces..., although to be honest his moaning did bring my good mood down a little!
David is ´preoccupado´, because he is worried about his mother going off to Mendoza with her ´musculoso´ Tango instructor. HA, Jealous morelike!? So Jimena takes the opportunity to teach David about modes of transport, and how to book long-distance bus tickets and suchlike. For me this section of the class was not that useful, because, having been travelling for such a long time, I know how all this works already, and for 5 months the language of travel was about all my Spanish skills streched to. Having said that, if I was a new arrival in Argentina I would find the class extremely useful because, like everything else, even the simple task of booking a bus can be very daunting in a foreign language!
Today´s verb LLEVAR is something I am also already familair with, because after spending alot of time gestuculating wildely at Pizza places, I decided it was about time to learn the words for TO TAKE!
There is something that I have been thinking is a little odd throughout the series, but haven´t quite oput my finger on it yet...but Emanuel the vocab man keeps mentioning a certain Diego, and today he mentioned wanting to buy Laura (the vocab chica) a one way ticket to Bangladesh; I think i´m going to have to investigate the source of this bitterness a little further....
