Unfortunately I can't imagine sitting in a class right now with the way I feel. I'm hoping I'll be able to take the January session. So, sadly, no German from me for awhile.
However, someone in our house is learning the language. Marion has started to say "Oh, nein!" the last few days. At first I thought she was saying "Oh, mine!" But no, she has definitely picked up another German word. So far she regularly uses the following:
Gruezi - Swiss German for hello
Danke Schoen - Thank you (never says thank you in English anymore)
Nein - No
Ciao/Tcheuss - Swiss German for goodbye
And god knows what else that I can't understand.
She's going to be my translator soon.
