Well, we learned our first verbs on Saturday. Unlike other languages I’ve learned, the past tense is closer to the root word than the present tense, and seems much easier to master. The instructor created a “cheat sheet” using the verb “to write” (katab). Unfortunately, though, I have lost my cheat sheet. Took it to work and studied it during a boring, boring training seminar. I’m hoping it’s just mixed in with the seminar handouts. That’s what I get for trying to study when I should’ve been paying attention to something else.
On the Russian front: not good. I’ve more or less gotten the run-around from the level 3 instructor. Grrr. Not returning my calls or responding to emails.
