Buenas tardes. Yo me llamo Phyl y soy de los Estados Unidos. Mucho gusto y bienvenido a la conferencia de Live and Invest Overseas en Medellin...
Now I'll speak to you in my first language.
I am a survivor. I survived four weeks of homestay, living with the most wonderful paisa family and attending an immersion Spanish school in Envigado, outside Medellin. I can honestly say it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I would encourage every one of you who want to learn Spanish—do it.
I knew absolutely nothing about the school before I got to Medellin. There was a flyer in the desk of the hotel where I was staying. I contacted the owner, Lucas, and he said, "I'm coming to fetch you to show you the school."
