It is just a few days before I head out to Chile, and I am getting more excited and nervous by the day. I have no idea what to expect, and I know I will be challenged in many ways. I am a beginner at Spanish and have never been in a setting where I have to use a different language on a daily basis. I am worried that I will struggle in basic daily tasks and events but I know that is what it takes to improve. I am so excited to meet my host family and I wonder what it will be like getting to know them. I wonder how long it will take me to be comfortable speaking Spanish. I am preparing to go into a place full of unknowns. I cannot wait to see all the growth that I go through throughout the next several weeks
