Today is the first Grammar control. That means our first quiz. I think that means we spend the first hour of class reading a newspaper article and filling in blanks, answering questions, and otherwise 'grammar-in-context'. Sounds like fun to me! We haven't covered anything new so i couldn't really study for this.
Today is also the second long day of the week (the first is Tuesday). That means four consecutive hours of culture/civilization courses. I think today is Economy and French Song, which make a frustrating combination because the 'professor' for Economy is almost too hard to understand and the 'professor' for French Song too easy and slow (for 'professor', read 'someone still pursuing his or her studies'). Since it's Friday, this order is preferable. Anyway, it must be good exercise for the ears and brain, and I can always study my dictionary in between the remarks on French Song.
I mentioned that it snowed last weekend. Now it's raining again. Personally, I'm convinced that spring is finally going to break through and kick winter out the door... or maybe it's just my index fingers poking out the holes in my gloves. In any case, I haven't taken the bus to the university once, which I consider a personal triumph.
Thursday of next week my dear French professor at Grace arrives for a visit! Prof. Schram will be meeting with our two study-abroad programs here, the CIEF in Dijon and the Sorbonne in Paris. And of course also visiting France, and us. :)
Happy Friday to my brothers and sisters as they finish up their school for the week, and to Ardith and Daddy as they finish up their work for the week, and to Mommy as she finally gets to sleep till a sane hour tomorrow... which also applies to Daddy and Ardith, but not the kids because they will be up early to hit the computer games.
