The Czech Class Finds Beer and Fries
Today, since it is the second-to-last day, we had a test, which seems to some extent focused on placing us should we continue. I am pleased to report that, unlike the regular placement tests they do, it is not a test that can be graded by placing the answer key over the thing and seeing which boxes weren't filled in correctly. It even had an essay section, which I'm sure I did better on than the fill-in-the-blanks since on the latter I always made dumb mistakes that make me wonder how I could have written something that I know perfectly well is wrong.
Afterwards, several of us went out for beer, for the first time. It would have been nice if we had started this earlier on, but I didn't have the energy to initiate it then. I think some of my classmates have also become much more confident about their speaking skills, too, so that, for instance, my three Mexican classmates no longer routinely lapse into Spanish but speak in Czech more and more often.
We had a nice time and plan to go out again after class on Tuesday.
