Today was my last official full day in LRU 100, better known as the 28-week Russian introductory + basic course.
In order to help me prepare for my final assessment, my instructor and last remaining classmate BB put me through a kind of “murderboard”. For nearly two hours they peppered me with questions on democracy, economics, human rights, current events, terrorism, education, mass media, public transportation, immigration, ecology, American values, hobbies and yes…even kangaroos. (Because I did my postgraduate degree in Australia, I suppose it was fair game!)
Then we spent an hour reading articles with our reading instructor, and I went home and ate a burrito while watching an episode of Dateline on demand. #braindead
I’m pretty tired, but I think I am as ready as I’m going to get. I can’t wait for tomorrow! The weather report is calling for a few hours of snow in the morning, but let’s just ignore that detail!
