Learning

One story, three ways

So I had my second-to-last Spanish lesson yesterday, and though I’ve been struggling with the language since Japanese always pops into my head (and I haven’t been studying very much), I was able to write a short “story,” on the spot in class, without any notes! That was kind of encouraging. I may not be fluent, but I can understand more than I could before! So, without further ado, here is my story in Spanish, Japanese, and then English. (Note: My Spanish is far from perfect, and my Japanese is very much out of practice! Also, I promise this is not going to become a cat blog, even though it might look like it’s headed in that direction! 🙂 )

Yo vivo en mi casa con mi esposo y dos gatos. Mi gato corren y comen todos las dias. Uno gato llamo es Comet. Uno gato llamo es Curry. Curry es naranja, y Comet es negro y gris.

夫と私は2ねこと私たちの家に住んでいます。私たちのねこが毎日はしたり、食べたりします。さいしょのねこの名前がコメットです。ほかのねこの名前がカリーです。カリーがだいだいいろです。コメットがくろいろとグレーです。

I live in my house with my husband and two cats. Every day, my cats run and eat. One cat is named Comet, and the other cat is named Curry. Curry is orange, and Comet is black and grey.

So there it is! Next week is my final Spanish lesson, so we’ll see what happens from there. I’m not sure if I will continue or not as the Intermediate class starting in February might be held in a different city that’s a bigger commute. In any event, I’m happy that I got some Spanish basics! Hasta pronto! またね! See you soon!

  1. hey, that’s really cool! I was wondering recently how your Spanish class was going but I didn’t get the chance to ask you. looks like you learned a lot! I don’t think i’d be able to write Spanish like that anymore.
