Monday, Nov.7th, I begin Intensive German classes, alas. I say that with foreboding because of all of the horror stories I hear from expats about their forays into German language and culture. But, not to be daunted, I will venture forth in my blissful ignorance of the myriad errors I will likely commit and do my best to become educated. My classes are every weekday from 9 am until 12:30 pm. Just enough time to rattle this old brain and challenge it's ability to still learn a new language. (Most of the Mandarin I have learned has disappeared and is only used in Chinese restaurants. I hope our lengthy years of living in Deutschland will imprint this language on my psyche so that I will not have it disappear as my Mandarin has.)
I am looking forward to being able to
Wish me luck on this new adventure and cross your fingers that I will be able to pass the test that will allow me to travel overseas and guarantee that I will be able to re-enter Germany. The necessity of this validation is what has spurred me on to this quest, but now that it is imminent,I am looking forward to seeing how I do.
I will update you and share with you what will certainly be a difficult, yet rewarding, challenge.
