I started taking a Medical Spanish term course as I was starting my second week in Mexico, and I’ve been learning a lot. Finding time to travel to and tour Mexico in addition to my coursework has been a challenge, but I’m getting used to it. I am picking up a lot of new vocabulary, which will help me better prepare for my medical observation next month. I also went out with other classmates and got to know them better! I was a little nervous about this trip because I didn’t know anyone, but I got along with my classmates, explored Mexico, and studied in the city’s beautiful cafés this week!
