There I was, plugging away at my Danish classes, when out of the blue...
An unexpected test.
Okay, it wasn't entirely unexpected. Our Thursday/Friday warned us last week that we would be having a test to move forward from module 3.1 to module 3.2. She didn't, however, specify when until earlier this week. And the test was to be today (Thursday). She also didn't tell our Monday/Wednesday teacher what kinds of things would be on the test, so that we knew what to study.
So, it was a big giant mystery when we arrived in class today. I was feeling fairly confident that I understood that grammar that we'd learned so far, until she handed back some recent homework and I realized that I'd gotten about 80% of it wrong.
While some of the previously taught grammatical rules are becoming more and more clear, we've started to learn more that seem to tie my head into knots.
Thursdays are always a little bit tougher than other days, with class the day before followed by a cappella rehearsals at night. I find myself rushing through the homework without really focusing on what I'm doing.
Something to work on, for sure.
Oh, and have I mentioned that the puppy is going through a phase where he's forgotten how to sleep through the night?
My husband brought home ear plugs today. Maybe a full night's sleep will help solve the concentration problems I've had in class lately.
When in doubt, blame the dog.
