Letter from Amalia... in English!
Amalia is 18 years old. She is a high school senior from Guadalajara, Mexico. Back in the fall, Ward and I asked her whether she was interested in taking extra English classes, and she eagerly accepted. She has been taking the classes for five months now, and last week we got a thank you letter from her... which she wrote in English! She writes:
Dear Jessica Crocket,
Hi How are you? I'm Fine.
thank you for being with me.
what's your favorite sport? I like to play basketball and futbool soccer. My favorite hobbies are read a books all the time, listen to music, my favorite singer is Christine Delario. My favorite color is pinck and purple my favorite food is Kentucky fried chicken. What is yours? I miss her so much, is a wonderful person I hope to see her again, I love her so much.
I think she did a pretty great job! I've been slowly working on my Spanish for a LOT longer than 5 months, and I think she did better than I would writing the same letter in Spanish. I'm really looking forward to seeing her again in September!
