I know, I am kind of sickening sometimes

I'm a student again! I'm a student again! Back into the exciting world of second language lessons, which you may fondly(??) remember from last autumn. Just to clarify: I'm at the institute for Nordic languages this term and next term to get my requirements for general university study sorted out, IE to get my Swedish up from conversational fluency to academic standard.

A notable difference from last time is that since these classes are at Stockholm University there is actually structure, and clear goals. I am so excited by this after the local course in all its complete randomness, I can't even tell you.

There's also a lot of work! Right now I have enthusiasm about this too, since I spent a lot of the last Swedish course I took helping everyone else because I'd run out of work, but give it time - I'll soon settle into wailing about the number of assignments, I'm sure.

Another wide scattering of nationalities and native languages, and also another group made up almost entirely of women.

Off to do some more of my assigned reading!

PS: What are you planning on studying once you get your Swedish up to scratch, btw?
