Learning Portuguese

"Writing Portuguese was so hard in the CTM, not to mention speaking it. But yesterday I had to translate a letter into Portuguese that Sister Bringhurst wrote. So the Portuguese is becoming a lot easier, that's for sure. I'm totally fluent writing and speaking. So yeah, the Portuguese is good."

Curtis sent home a package with somes items in it that we will put in a scrapbook when he gets home. There were pages of notes from the Brazil MTC. It was his first attempt at writing in Portuguese. There were many corrections on the pages but I could tell how hard he had been trying to learn the language. Now he is fluent in Portuguese. He's come a long way since his early days in Brazil.
