Did you know there is more than one version of German? There's Northern German and Southern German...I think the difference is in the way the pronouce certain words, and sounds...we learn the Northern version.
It's a lot harder than I thought. Some of their words are long and annoying to spell. Like Pen - it's formal name is Kugelschreiber (really long, isn't it?) but they also call it Kuli. So, if I want to get technichal, I'm currently using a Tastatur which means keyboard. Computer is Computer, ironically (except they pronounce the 'u' sound more). I guess some things are universal.
But I like the class. It's interesting.
In other news, this weekend I'm teaching Taylor to play basketball...
That's all for now.
