Portuguese Practice

In a verbling chat
Jordan has been wanting to try out verbling ever since he heard about it a few years ago. It's a company that connects you with personalized online language classes or tutoring. Last week Jordan finally got to try it out. He went online and found a Portuguese tutor that looked like a good fit, scheduled a time slot for after the kids would be in bed, paid the fee, and that was it. When it was time for the tutoring session, he just logged in and he got to spend an hour  speaking with a guy who lives in northern Brazil, practicing his Portuguese, asking questions and finding out more details about important things to keep in mind as we're making our travel plans. And Jordan really loved it (on a scale of 1-10, definitely a 10)

I love that smile of Jordan's!
Jordan had so much fun with it that he also set up a time for Landon to have a mini-lesson, which he did on Saturday. And wow! It was so fun to watch Landon speaking and hear how well he could communicate and understand. The tutor was super and Landon had fun talking and learning about animals in Brazil, soccer,  school, etc.  Such fun!
