I received an newsletter today from the university I attend, and they’re (finally!) offering a German course. It’s offered this fall, and I’ve gone ahead and signed up for it. It’s just an “elementary” German course, so I’m not really sure how much I’ll learn, but I’m still looking forward to it. At least it’ll put me in a position where I have to use the language some; while corresponding with people online in German is quite helpful (not to mention enjoyable), it’s not quite the same as talking directly to someone, face to face.
I just hope the class moves fairly quickly. If it’s really slow, I may go mad. 15 weeks of reciting basic verb conjugations does not sound fun. 🙂
