Spanish is picking up.. super slow. I have class 3 days a week just before lunch and they're only 45 minutes long so the time goes pretty fast and by the time I've gotten into it, it's already over. I always finish feeling exhausted (and hungry) and lately I'm getting angry and fustrated at myself and about how goddamn annoying it is to be dyslexic. People say that Spanish is a whole lot easier than French but honestly since I've been here I think I've become more aware of how much better I was at French than I thought I was when in Paris.
I've been having one-on-one lessons this week while the others have been doing their in-store training. I thought it might be better and that I'd learn a lot more on my own but ohmygod it's so much harder and I'm starting worry that I will never be able to get this right. I can't process anything fast enough in the short time we have to feel like I'm actually making any progress at all. My memory is turning to poo and I wish we had more time to just repeat and repeat and repeat. With all of us there, the pace is a little bit slower but perhaps that's what I need to properly register all the information that's just hitting (and falling off) my face.
The other day my teacher asked me about the apartment I'm moving into. So I told her (tried to, several times) the name of the street but she had no idea what I was on about. I wrote it down and then she knew exactly where it was and then the next 5 minutes were dedicated to teaching me how to pronounce it correctly. Something about that gargle-y 'g' sound and that the 'r' is soft because it's not the same as a double 'rr' sound. Or something like that. Who the fuck knows.
