I've always been a big nerd. I made good grades in high school. Went to a good college. Blah, blah, blah. Today is the end of the semester test in Hebrew class. I know that I have no idea how to do the things that they will ask of me. So, I have been practicing how to write a little essay on how I can't complete the exam. My Hebrew keeps improving, but just not the parts that will be tested this morning.

Oh good luck! I took mine two weeks ago and it wasn't too bad. I'm sure your test is a few levels up from mine...

You'll do great!!!

Shirat: OMG! I left most of the test blank. Seriously, I knew what they wanted me to do - but I just had no idea how to do it. So, I wrote a big, sad essay (in Hebrew of course) on my test paper about how I promise to study hard during the break to be on par with kitah daled plus/hay. Tests suck.

Our ulpan is pretty flexible. I mean, most people are just learning for their own betterment. I probably should take my studies more seriously, but I am not motivated. As long as I am moving forward, I am satisfied. The goal of writing a long paper in Hebrew is so far off. I am trying to get by on my good looks.

Anyway, dear, thanks for the support!

The fact that you could write a big sad essay about studying more Hebrew is fantastic! Did you ever picture yourself writing in a language that didn't use this alphabet!!?? I mean...if you really think about your progress, it's remarkable. Starting from scratch and getting to where you are in such a short amount of time. I'm very impressed and only hope that I can get there too!
