Man! Learning Deutsch is so much work! Good lawd! Masculine and feminine words and using them in the proper order is just soooooooooo much utom!!
But I have to admit that I am really loving the idea of speaking another language besides English. One exercise involved writing parts of the body in our mother language. Now English is the general language in Nigeria but we also have tons of other languages even I do not know how many….probably over 200.
So I tried to write body parts in igbo but failed so badly and just switched to English. The ones I knew, I left in igbo:
Mouth: onu, Nose: imi, Bottom: otula, Eyes: anya, Head: isi, Hand: aka, Leg: ukpu , Teeth: eze, Belly: afor, Neck: olu, Ear: ola
That’s about all I know….sad really. I hope I can get our kids speaking at least one Nigerian language. Where’s a Duolingo app for Igbo when you badly need one right?
Anyways, aside language school, I’ve been totally busy completing an order for a client. She didn’t say what exactly she wanted, just that she loves bows and bright colors so I took reign! (Pictures at the end of this post).
I was totally excited making all I did and it reminded me how much I miss using my hands. After my course, I will definitely whip out my sewing machine and start practicing. I always wanted to have a cloth line for kids ever since I fell in love with hand made but I need at least a B2 level in Deutsch to attend a design school and I’m fairly certain I won’t have the patience to apply for B2. I plan to end at A2 and just pick up the rest along the way. But hey, it’s one day at a time right?
Speaking of learning, I took my first swimming lesson yesterday and had a serious panic attack the moment I stepped into the pool and stood on tip toes for close to an hour. My heart beat was racing and I couldn’t breathe and held on so tight to Gorgeousness who is a mean teacher by the way. Was totally stingy with his hands and wouldn’t let me hold on to him after a while which wasn’t so bad after all. I did however enjoy going under water and twirling around. With my nose closed of course. It will take me a few more weeks to learn going underwater without holding my nose closed. So yay to my first lesson.
Gorgeousness is such an amazing swimmer and when I wasn’t fretting with all that water around me, I was having the hots for him. 🙂
Anyways, Einen schönen Tag !
