Just a quick little post. Being immersed in a foreign language nearly all the time is a roller coaster, to say the least. There are days when I feel like Spanish just rolls of my tongue, and then there are days when I feel like banging my head against a language barrier the size of the Great Wall of China. One those rougher days I try to tell myself how much I really have improved but it's difficult when dinner conversation sounds like white noise. Good solid proof is really the best medicine.
For example this commercial from Argentina. I'm not sure how to ut it on here but I think this is the link below. I watched it on Youtube before I left and honestly I didn't understand a word. For you guys who know a bit of Spanish it will be obvious to you just how CRAZY the accent here is, and for those you you who don't, don't worry because the commercial is still funny. Enjoy.


And now I can understand it!! I was so excited to be able to see some progress that I had to share.

Here's to the small victories in life!!!! Like understanding a Doritos ad.


  1. HUH?? What in the heck just happened...? I'm impressed if you understood any of that. All I got fromit was someone eating chips and a girl being strangled....
