About a month ago, I signed up for German conversation classes on a whim, and I took my first introductory lesson last Monday. I was a bit tongue-tied though, even if I'd just been to Germany...but I suppose I muddled through my first hour and a half sufficiently well enough for my teacher, a woman hailing from the German-speaking part of Luxemburg, to decide I'm going to be first up for the Vortrag next time, a 20 minute monologue on something in the news, or anything else I might wish to discuss. I wish I could think of something! Still, I've got 4 more days to come up with any ideas...should be a doddle ;-).
No joy in sorting out my Internet woes yet. I think the problem's in my modem now...or one of the problems is. I really should ask someone who knows about these things.
