Bienvenido. This site is for you.

I assumed I’d always belong to the “three years and nothing” crowd. But living in Peru, the magic happened: I began to speak Spanish. I fell in love with the culture, the language, and my Peruvian husband.

You just need to be in touch with the good stuff: wisdom from those farther down the road, and resources packed with living language. You’re busy teaching; let me dig it all up for you and share it here.
