Feliz Cumpleaños


Hola a todos,

Today is 26th June 2018 or 26 de junio dos mil dieciocho, which means today is my cumpleaños!

We have been travelling by coche car up and down the Costa Blanca Coastline finding plenty of beautiful spots to blog about. It has also forced me to use more and more of my speaking Spanish which has been great!

This morning, I awoke to regalos presents, cartas cards and besitos kisses from my dog!

Birthdays are super important to Spanish speakers, not only do they get excited by their own birthday, but they get really excited about other peoples too. Just like you’ll say Happy Birthday to people in English, you might like to be able to do the same in Spanish!

At the end of the day, true integration comes from being able to use Spanish in a social context, so don’t get too caught up in the solid, correct grammar and just try to have fun!
