Conquering the Language Barrier

On our recent short visit to Honduras to renew our residencies, we were thrilled to find that our Spanish hasn't suffered quite as much as we'd imagined after six months in the U.S. Nevertheless, we took the opportunity to visit the Spanish Institute of Honduras in Siguatepeque, Honduras. We plan to attend full-time classes at the school for several months after returning to the field. We were impressed with the teaching methods used by the school, including clear goals to accomplish, complete grammar workbooks and extensive verbal practice. We have also heard great things about the school from fellow missionaries and former students. It was exciting to see classes in-person and get an idea of what to expect when we arrive.

Here some photos taken on tour last month:
