Guten Abend!

I am not about to end this blog after three months of posting. No, not again. I’ve just been so busy as soon as the year and work days started.

Today, I started my class at the Goethe Institute. Our diverse class of 20 consists of Eurolinuga Deutsch hopefuls whose reasons for learning are as varied as well. Some are college students who are their “just for fun,” while some are there to culturally broaden their horizons. One, like me, is hoping to grab a scholarship in Deutschland, though not this winter semester. Three are expecting to undergo the “Au pair,” a system or agency where one can apply as a nanny and just go through a basic processing in the German Embassy.

I’m still struggling with pronouncing my umlauts, guttural “ch” as in Achtung, and disposing my rolling “r” and preconceived notions of the language and comparing it with English. The first day was manageable and enjoyable mainly because of our multi-lingual teacher, Greg, an American who speaks German and learning French but living in the Philippines.
