Language Learning

As a gringo living in Mexico, I’m learning something new every day. Often times I teach myself words focused on a specific subject so I can talk about the things I’m passionate about with others. Then I like to pass it on to you.

Let me know if there’s a subject you’d like me to focus on and I’ll try to put it up!
