All of last week Katrina & I were evaluated in our progress of learning the Russian language and culture. A very distinguished consultant flew in for the week and we spent time discussing our current schedule, our culture knowledge and future goals. We also sat down with a native speaker and conversed for about 30 minutes. This conversation was recorded and then analyzed by our consultant. After our conversation was analyzed, we sat down with the consultant and discussed how we did. He told us the good things and the bad things, then he gave us some goals to work on for the next six month. Overall, we were very happy with the results. We are both progressing well and with continued hard work, I think we will both end up speaking well.
Thanks to those of you who thought of us during this time, it can be a little stressful but we came out unscathed. Now I guess I should go study. =)
