Language Update from Charlotte
Well, we are past the halfway mark of this trimester, and are so ready for this one to end. We had heard going into this one, that the second trimester was the hardest and most intense out of the three, and I believe it. I have two very hard classes. Thankfully, I have now learned - at least on paper - the 14 verb tenses. That is in my grammar class, and in the conversation class, I have had presentations to present almost everyday! Hopefully, we are making progress, though it's hard to tell sometimes, especially on a day to day basis. But we can look back to when we first got here, and see that we have made a lot of progress. We have actually gotten to the point where we can discuss the sermons on Sunday after church. I would estimate that today I got about 75% of what went on at church, compared to probably 2% when we first got here - so I know we've made progress. Please continue to pray that we will continue to progress. One day - maybe we'll get 100% of the sermon - although I don't know if I get 100% even in when it's in English!
