Consdering spending March in Bogota. Would love to hear any recommendations for restaurants, coffee shops / coworking spaces for work, and any other cool experiences.
I give up. My attempts to self-teach Spanish as a second language is going nowhere. Can someone please recommend a live tutor? (Central American Spanish preferred). Gracias!
Dude. agreed. Iโ€™d love to do a group zoom if you find someone!
Okay so this entirely free course is a life changer www.languagetransfer.org/complete-spanishbr />
I am using it since 3 weeks and I'm at Episode 55 / 90. For me the way he explains everything makes so much sense.
1st episode is like an intro into the method. 2nd episode already hooked me completely.
I've been using that for 2.5 months now. I've been through the first half a couple times. I agree, it's amazing!! But I'm stuck. I need 1:1 attention from an educator to hold me accountable and to offer multiple learning strategies when I'm struggling.
๐Ÿ›ฌ zphejghuvobeontkz just arrived in ๐Ÿ Bridgetown,Barbados, #latin-america
wnbabtmzbdagbzljlcipn is the way to go IMO
Iโ€™ll be there towards the last 1-2 weeks of January!
I'd recommend an in-person Spanish tutor to start, 2 hours a day 4 days a week for 2 months one-on-one if it's in the budget, then mix in Duolingo if you're just beginning. Then once you have it off the ground and can speak basic conversational which should happen around the 2 month period, start reading this book ( www.amazon.com/Easy-Spanish-Step-by-Step/dp/B0953V37R1/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=easy+spanish&qid=1670682779&sr=8-1 ) and highlight words you don't know before advancing in the book and memorize them. It will help with grammar and making sure you learn basic words that build on each other throughout the book. If you continue lessons as well after the 2 months which I recommend you should be pretty damn good by the 3rd month enough to speak to people on the street and barter with taxi drivers and have general conversations with locals. If your teacher gives you homework the more the better, I found TV shows didn't help a ton more in-person conversation with locals and not being afraid to make mistakes helped the most. Hope this helps! Keep going it's the most worth it thing you'll do for traveling in LATAM & Spain!
puvhbfcxryhjbpzvl ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Gracias.
<@U01SKJ1QEAX> I'm a Spanish teacher! And a digital nomad too ๐Ÿ™‚ I can send you some information if you like.
<@U01CH9UQVD4> Good tips! But IMHO 2 hours a day 4 days a week for 2 months could be too much if you are a beginner...But of course, could be possible!
In three months maybe you can have a basic conversation but as a teacher I prefer when my students just enjoy the learning process. Because could be three months or six, seven...there are many factors involved.
I got a LOT out of a month with BaseLang

vwmcnojdridfmcaummzrh True! For me I found it I took it more seriously when I was on a strict schedule than this once or twice a week meeting I can find an excuse to miss. It got me into a routine of practicing Spanish daily and allowed me to get fully immersed versus being in English mostly then once or twice a week switching back to Spanish. Kind of a rip the bandaid off approach where you just go all in and get to where you want to be much faster. For example 2 hours a day 4 days a week for 2 months gets you to 64 hours of Spanish in just 60 days, versus 1.5 hours a day for 2 days a week gets you to only 24 hours of Spanish practice in 60 days. I've found that while yes the first month is very frustrating and you feel you are going nowhere, you get to that level about a month or so in where everything "clicks" and you have the motivation to stick it through, versus not having the "click" moment until month 2 or 3 if you went the other route, which you may have already dropped out by then out of frustration for feeling like you're not "getting it". Just my two cents coming from a learner! Definitely isn't for everyone and of course it's time consuming but I think totally worth it to go all in and take it seriously and fully immerse yourself in the language and make that your one goal in the near-term and make it a big priority in your life and know why you're doing it. If you don't really care or want to learn I feel you won't care or try - so knowing why you're doing it and committing fully I felt helped me a lot. For me it was for a wider dating pool and connecting with locals, but to each their own!
Well done!! But please tydybrpaufchhdu don't forget that you need time to assimilate everything! And you are right, you have to take it seriously and find your goal or as you said "your why" ๐Ÿ™‚
For anyone in Medellin looking to do some hiking we have a meetup setup Saturday just head to the meetup section of the Nomadlist site. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Hey reovunmxk in Bogotรก, you have a lot of places to visit, eat, and have fun. What kind of plans do you have? For safety, the general recommendation it to avoid using your phone on streets while walking or crowded places. If you drop by Medellin let me know as I live there and I can guide you through the city.
On this same topic ^ Would you say better not to wear an Apple watch or that this should be fine?
Well pnvfcnahizmrfsrc I use mine all the time and that's not a problem.

tbsqzeaokmwlshvh our current plans are very loose. Basically, to get there and have Bogota as a home base to work out of and possibly take some side trips to places like Medellin, Quito, etc.

And thank you for the offer! Iโ€™ll let you know
I see przalnzbk The best side of Bogota to stay is at the north of the city. Also, you can find good hostels in the downtown, specifically in the neighborhood called "Candelaria", that's the most touristic place in the city.

Does anybody have recommendations on Islands in Latinamerica to work from? (and maybe does not rain too much in April/May)

๐Ÿ‘‹ Howdy I arrived in Medellin ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด recently, Looking to meet other nomads.
How big the island? :desert_island:
flag-do Republic Dominicana is cool and decent internet.
flag-cw The ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaรงao) from Netherlands are pretty, safe and with very good internet (although not as cheap as the rest of latam)
flag-mx Cozumel in Mexico

The other islands have very bad internet on average (flag-cu Cuba, ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด San Andrรฉs, ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡น Haiti, ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Jamaica, ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช Isla Margarita, ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ณ Roatรกn, โ€ฆ)
Can you tell me about your experience with Noma? Iโ€™ve been contemplating joining for a while.
Anyone in Beunas Aries? Iโ€™ll be there on Sunday
Was really great! If youโ€™re starting to nomad around and want to see other people like that I really really recommend it
The noma team is really great!
Thanks. Iโ€™ve been debating between Noma and Remote year. Hopefully able to do both here soon
Roatan actually had a very good wifi in my Airbnbs and I highly recommend this cowork Beach Desk
Good to know, Roatรกn wasnโ€™t that good 10 years ago. Although itโ€™s pretty expensive to be Honduras, but ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ
Any families have experience spending a month in Aruba? Looking for suggestions on experiences, accommodations, locations to visit or stay in, etc. Likely heading there in Feb/Mar, roughly.

We have 3 kids (12b, 9b, 2g) home school and need decent WiFi to do zoom calls for work. Budget is ideally sub $2k for accom, but we can flex up to $3k if necessary.

Does anyone have tips on how to learn large numbers in Spanish?

Iโ€™ll be in Colombia for two weeks in March and my Spanish is generally good enough to get by with little issue, but Iโ€™ve read Colombia is mostly cash based still and the numbers are very large due the the currency.
I might get made fun of for this but this site has helped me a ton. www.profedeele.es/|https://www.profedeele.es/

Does anyone have any tips for Belize? Traveling there next week.
dcurr 13d
I didnโ€™t like Curacao much. Itโ€™s very expensive and you have to drive everywhere
Everything is in thousands, and โ€œthousandโ€ is โ€œmilโ€ in Spanish. So as long as you learn numbers 1-100 then thatโ€™s all that matters and itโ€™s relatively simple if you know numbers 1-10.

For instance, 8 is โ€œochoโ€ and 80 is โ€œochentaโ€. So something for 80,000 will just be โ€œochenta milโ€.
Same, I preferred bonaire ๐Ÿ™‚
How do we request a channel be made for Curacao?
This seems super inefficient

Hi - Any tips on El salvador? Beach nomad towns? Safety? Wifi? Price?
San Salvador was a lot of fun. Went there for a Bitcoin conference. I don't know much about nomad specific areas but El zonte is "Bitcoin beach" and you're bound to find expats there
in case you buy a house or something, you know ๐Ÿ˜„

any notes on teh wifi?
It was fine at the one place I stayed in El Salvador
San Salvador
nilskp 10d
I can second that. It's very safe in most places, just don't be an idiot, but that's like anywhere else.
WiFi was fine where I stayed, but really depends on the individual place
Hey cjhzpdkisi I live in El Salvador. The country has become safer than prior years so safety should not be something you should worry too much about. There are several beaches you could visit like beaches in La Libertad or Sonsonate or la Uniรณn. Also most of the places have wifi (it is recommended to ask before make a reservation) prices will vary from place to place you could find lunch from $2.50 USD up to $25.00. Let me know if you would like more specifics or help while you are in the country

Holaaa :upside_down_face:
Any Whatsapp groups for Nicaragua / Costarica / Panama?
Any of you plans to travel there within next weeks? :beers:
Is Panama a good place to nomad for a month? ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป
magdad 9d
Iโ€™ve been here for a week now; the capital looks pretty boring, I moved to very chilly el Zonte beach and enjoy surfing in the morning and working later. Itโ€™s good to ask for the internet speed before you book sth for longer ๐Ÿ˜› Although accomodation prices are crazy on the seaside (I found hostel for $20 / night that was cheap).
Completely safe (like U04L1UAG0SDmentioned) I was hitchhiking and walking around after sunset alone.
I wouldn't recommend Panama. There's not much to do, and people are not friendly.

Better spend your time in Nicaragua and Costa Rica
feel free to join #costa-rica and #nicaragua channels
Hey trwfihax there are some interesting places you could visit on the city if youโ€™re still around I can recommend a couple based on your interest
magdad 8d
munymcinemei Thank youuu heart_hands probably I expressed myself wrong - I prefer nature / beach (especially in such hot climate) rather than big cities. But maybe you could leave your recommendations here ๐Ÿ˜Š I think Salvador is still not discovered sufficiently!
I had a good time in Bocas del toro for a month last year March
Iโ€™m heading to Nicaragua on the 4th!
I'll be in Mexico
Il thinking of going to Dominican Republic, it looks nice anc cheap but need to do some research!
Been to the three, I'll rank them as this:
1.- Mexico, Isla Mujeres. Workation at Selina is a must.
2.- Dominican Republic, Las Terrenas. Amazing beaches and super chill, nothing compared to Punta Cana.
3.- Colombia, Bogota. Honestly not the big deal, I'd rather choose Cartagena in Colombia
hola 4d
Iโ€™m looking into Aruba as a place to get in some classic Caribbean beach vibes for a month - do any of you have any advice for finding good accommodation there (or the best place to stay), the internet infrastructure, getting around, and/or making friends? ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™ll probably be there solo
unless you really like places overly americanized and full of US tourists, Iโ€™d recommend to go one island over to Curacao
anyone in El Salvador now?
hey mqowqxwoda I am ๐Ÿ™‹
or at least one for the Caribbean
