Typical First-Time English Conversation Assistant Blog Ideas

I try to write with good grammar, but I’m going to depart a bit from the norm for this parody of some typical first-time in Spain English Conversation Assistant posts I read. This is all in good fun, though, because I too wrote some blog entries like this in the past (think 2009 or 2010). I hope you enjoy!

– omg no dryers
– spanish people eat, like, really late!
– did y’all know that spanish people have their washers in the kitchen! why is that! i will not spend too much time actually thinking about why that could be; i prefer to just laugh about how crazy that is!
– spanish people are, like, so fashionable!
– i loooooooooooove tinto de verano. and also tapas.
– lol, bidets.
– i just can’t stay out as late as they do!
– omg traveling around europe is so easy!
– i traveled one time, so i can write a post on how to pack your bag properly. i have experience.
– spanish schools teach british english, but lol, they say rubber. dirty word!
– milk doesn’t have to be refrigerated! what is this uht madness!
– spanish bureaucracy is the WORST (of course i have never compared this to my own country’s!)
– i still like tapas.
– i gave in and went to starbucks; i know, i know, a crime! i feel shame, but i promise NEVER to go into a mcdonalds. except when really drunk. but i hope to only have vague memories of that.
– i visited a city, so i now know the top 10 sites to see, i am an expert.
– ham.
– i ate some shrimp and it had eyes. duuuuuuude.
– i am supposed to be teaching english, but i realized i don’t know that much about english. halp!
– post about how much spain has changed me, de verdad, i am a better person and i will become that annoying person back home that always responds with, “well, when i was in Spain”.
– i tried to say peine (spanish for “comb”), but i said pene, and well, my life is basically over.
– i am now fluent in spanish, lol, it only took a year of being in spain but mainly speaking to other american expats! i even dream in spanish, it is true, do try not to be jealous.

Once I got started, I found I couldn’t stop. How my impression of Spain has changed since I first got here, way back in 2008!

How has your perspective on Spain shifted over time?

  1. Not sure why a washer in the kitchen is considered so groundbreaking? To be honest I never really noticed. Just made sense to have it in the kitchen instead of wasting a separate room for it in a small apartment. My mom has her washer machine in the kitchen in her apartment in Boston which surprise surprise, that’s the US! May not be the norm but it does happen here too! And the US has milk that can be left unrefrigerated too, it’s called Parmalat.

    Really amusing post and while I was oblivious to washer machines (my host mother’s washer machine was outside of her house in a separate building in her patio in Malaga), lots of these things were surprising to me the first time I came to Spain.
