Since I'm leaving on June 15, 2008 to teach English as a Foreign Language in the Galapagos Islands, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, for two months, I thought it might be useful to find out the history of the islands and useful information cultural information that I could use to integrate myself into their culture and use in my teaching while I'm there. Searching on Google, I first entered: "Galapagos Islands" OR "Islas Galapagos" (as they are called in Spanish) so I could get a full listing of both English and Spanish websites available to me because I am able to read both languages fluently.
Over winter break, I was able to visit Key West with mi novio (¿Cómo se dice en inglés?) , who's from Tampa, FL, where we celebrated New Year's on Duval Street. On the way down to the centro of Key West, we met a man on the bus from Mérida, México, located in the Yucatán Península, and he told us all about his life and how he came to live in Key West.
Hi! I'm a Spanish teacher. I have a strong passion to teach in an urban setting.
