Good account, thanks.

Sounds like a workable place, with outside income.

Congrats on the TEFL.

Cost?

Mira, Ghost, Se dice "El Fantasma" ni "El Fantasmo".
(Look, ghost, it's [supposed] to be said as "El Fantasma" not "El Fantasmo").
Eso es algo para reflexionar.
(Food for thought)
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.

haha same with "el agua", "el aguila", there's quirks to every language. sometimes there's no applicable logic rules AFAIK.
Edit: I stand corrected, these are to avoid the diphthong of 'la aguila'

It's like in english
terminater vs terminator, adapter and adaptor, or connecter vs connector. Many people, even in engineering, get this wrong.

Ghost wrote:I also noticed in Nicaragua that most people would not say "de nada." They would usually just say "bueno." Little things like that threw me off too.


In Peru they don't say "de nada" much either, usually just "ya". Every country is different and has its own slang and words that are only used there. For example, in Mexico peanuts are "cacahuates", but in South-America they are called "mani". And of course in places like Argentina they don't even say "tu", they say "vos".
