Most expats struggle to learn Spanish, yet most agree that learning Spanish is advantageous in relocating and getting settled into life in Cuenca. To aid in this transition, Cuenca Expats Magazine will have in each upcoming issue a practical Spanish lesson for everyday living. Each lesson will have a situation an expat faces daily and some Spanish words and phrases to help successfully navigate that task.
