Radio Silence

Sorry I’ve been so quiet I’ve been:

  • revising for German exams
  • Sitting German exams
  • translating at Transvulcania
  • .

  • fighting off a lurgy.

Yesterday was the oral exam, and it went much better than I feared, so I’m pretty confident that I’ve passed the course exams and I can move on to Intermediate German next year.
I thought “certificacion” on June 5th meant that they’d hand me a certificate for this.
Nope.
It’s a loooong exam to get the certificate saying that I can speak basic German. In other words, I have to do the whole thing again, just when I thought I would be free to get the guest room ready for visitors.

Oh well, who needs sleep?
