Today was the first day of German School for this academic year, and unlike last year, all four of us went.

I wasn't sure what to expect from my class, which looks like it's going to involve reading, discussing things we read, and giving a short presentation. About half of the students in the class are heritage speakers like me, so I definitely feel like I'm in the right place. It's kind of a relief to be in a group of people who have the same general types of problems with the language that I do.

Karl seems to have enjoyed his class, and I'm sure Erika will be OK -- the teacher didn't tell the kids they should eat their snacks on the playground, which is different from what they did last year, so her main feeling about the first day of class was grumpiness about being hungry. She'd been very excited about the first day of class, so I'm sure things will look up next week.

John was looking a lot more relaxed during the break than he did before class, which I take as a good sign.

It's really a lovely atmosphere, one I'm really glad to be part of.

First day of German School, 2011

In unrelated news, Erika has reached a point in her journey into reading where she has trouble falling asleep without reading for a while first. I think she's taking after me.
