Today I've been going to several classes to make a couple announcements about El Día de La Familia this Saturday.  By the sixth class, I had it down pact what I was saying in my announcement with smooth-Spanish confidence, not to mention had been talking in Español the whole day.  The last class however, was an English class, and the teacher said I had to speak in English, that was the rule.

It caught me off guard.  I stumbled. I felt like I was doing backwards thinking, translating my Spanish in my head to English.  It felt a little unnatural, it was the first time in three weeks I intentionally spoke English to a group of students.  I kept beginning some of my sentences in Spanish, then paused to think about it, then spoke English.  When someone asked me "a que hora?" (what time?), I said, "A las nueve....I mean, at nine." The best was when someone asked me how many volunteers I needed.  I replied with "saz"....which is neither "six" or "seis." Saz.  No one laughed at that one. Nope. No one.

I never thought there'd be a day where I'd have trouble speaking Inglés.

Gracias a Dios.
