On top of all that, I have a very limited German vocabulary so that my ability to engage in a conversation with my teacher is also limited. But I am thankful because she is such a nice German lady. She even understands each time our lesson is interrupted with Sam's wails and fussiness. And the best thing is, she speaks very good English so that she can explain the grammar rules very well. I consider myself lucky.
Well, wish me luck everyone! I hope that at the end of my course, I will have learned how to speak and write correct German.
