Today I began my sixth week of language training. I feel, simultaneously, like I’ve only just started and like I’ve spent my entire life in French class. One of my A-100 classmates described it as Groundhog Day, which is really just about perfect. There’s such a routine to it that every day seems much like the next and it’s easy to lose track of time in the daily rounds of news articles and presentations and conjugations (which I really need to practice more). I have a progress evaluation scheduled for Friday, so we’ll see then what these weeks have been good for. I’m pretty sure I’ve made some significant improvements, but a 3/3 also seems very far away.
