Hi, I purchased the Rocket Spanish program because I am moving to Panama within the next two years.
I was born in David (my mom, a Swede, and my dad, a Panameno, met while attending college in Boston, married, moved there) . My parents divorced when I was three and my mom moved back to Massachusetts with my sister and me in tow. I finally got to meet my dad after about 40 years of living in the States.
One of my first memories is being surrounded by a group of children who spoke funny and kept laughing at me. My first language was Spanish and it didn't take me long to know what it's like to be different. I learned English so well that I blocked Spanish out of my brain apparently. After taking Spanish classes in junior high, high school and then a semester in college and receiving my lowest grades, I kind of gave up on it.
I visited Panama last month and my dear family has given me some land to build a house on. It is imperative that I learn Spanish now and I'm hoping that this course will help me to remove the mental block that has hindered me for so long.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you and, hopefully, learning from you along with the program.
Thanks for reading this!
