Spring18-SPA-280-001 Literature & Film

My expectations regarding service learning have definitely changed a little since starting. I am more focused on making small steps and completing small goals compared to the beginning. These changes happened due to the lack of understanding as to just how difficult the English language is to learn especially for the older adults. I feel as though those I work with are receiving as much as I am and vice versa. I am able to really feel my impact with the brightness of their smile when they finally understand something or get something right and am able to empathize having struggled with learning Spanish. I feel as though they are always very grateful for the time i spend with them and show me that in their own way. With Spanish I started at a young age so my brain was a bit "squishy" and able to adapt to the language much faster. Many of the people i work with are older adults who lived somewhere where there was no real need or even access to learn another language so when they got to the US they had a huge culture shock which was much different than the experience I had.
