Planning International Travel – W9D2 by Gabriella

Nov 12, 2015

Oaxaca, Mexico or Quetzaltenango, Guatemala…. Oaxaca… Quetzaltenango… Oaxaca…

My challenge was creating a Prezi Presentation about my traveling decision between Oaxaca, Mexico and Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.

I wanted to do this research because I want to plan my upcoming semester differently. I’ve taken Spanish courses in the past, but haven’t been able to have a cultural experience while speaking the language of another country. I believe I would benefit from studying abroad this semester.

Anyway, my research went on for a few hours until I decided to get some fresh air. When I came back, the trouble began. I could not figure out how to make an international call with the cheaper rate apps. Finally, after a lot of help from Blake, I was calling people in Mexico and Guatemala.

“¿Hablas Inglés?” was the phrase I used most frequently to start my phone calls. Honestly, it was so much fun! Sometimes the programs did not have a good English speaker, so I got to test my Spanish. For the most part, I talked with English speakers. I spoke with current students when I got lucky.

My final step was to stuff all of this information into a presentation. I am currently working on the voiceover for my Prezi presentation.
