The Black Expat: Spanish Language Immersion in Colombia (Interview with Jamarr Black, Part 1)
The Black Expat series continues with a spotlight on Colombia. In my interview with Jamarr Black, he shares why he decided to leave his job as a technical writer in Washington, DC to move to Cali, Colombia and how he got there on a $5 flight.
He also talks about how he overcame the frustration of being the only non-native Spanish speaker in a conversation and not understanding what was happening around him.
Jamarr gives his recommendations on how to prepare before complete immersion in a Spanish-speaking country, and gives an overview of the different Colombian Spanish accents. Tune in to learn some caleño Spanish phrases you won't find in Google translate.
