An ironic email from last year + a question for you

Hello! Sarah here, owner of Sarah’s Spanish School. I have a question for you, but first… I found this email that I sent out at this time last year. If you were on my list then, you might remember it? I thought it was pretty ironic so I wanted to share it with you again. […]

Day of the Dead

Good morning! Did you know today is a holiday? Feliz “Día de los muertos” – Happy Day of the Dead! Have you heard of this holiday? Do you know what it is? This is a bright and colorful celebration. Although the heart of the holiday is to remember those who have passed, the festivity itself […]

She doesn’t wash her car…here’s why.

We went down to Corpus Christi last week to visit my friend Morgan. Being the generous soul she is, she let us borrow her car for the week so we could bop around the island and explore. Of course, we wanted to make sure to return her car with a tank full of gas and […]

Spanish is Easy, English is Hard!

I constantly feel so lucky to have grown up speaking English, not having to learn it later in life.  Why? Because it’s hard!
