Sherry's first day of school began early in the morning with a long walk to the Amauta Spanish School. Well, actually it began with a macchiato and a medialuna at a cafe near the apartment, and then the long walk. It was a beautiful day, with a just a hint of autumn in the air.
Sherry arrives and like every student on the first day, poses for a photo and then enters the building to meet others in her class.
Sherry meets one of her classmates. Mika is from Holland, as are many others at the school, including the two young fellows to the right, Luuk and Wessal. They speak Dutch, German, English and a bit of French. They have finished high school and are taking a year to travel before going to university. I have socks older than these guys.
Sherry, first in the classroom (five others will arrive soon), meets her first teacher of the morning, Magali. After two intense hours with Magali, she will meet the charming, and humorous, Cesar, and spend another two hours in class.
So you might ask "Where is Jeem in all of this?" and "What was the result of our faithful correspondent's placement?" Well, Sherry and I are not in the same class, that's for sure. More about my experiences at language school,and the great activities they have us doing, later.
