I sat through today’s class, and I was optimistic and enthusiastic. The further class went, the less optimistic I became. I’m not saying she’s a bad teacher. She tells us a lot about the language, the history, and the culture, but I’m not learning the vocabulary or context. It’s context that I desperately need.
I need to find a way to practice the language with someone. I need to learn it as a LIVING language, not just book learnin’. If I can’t get some practice in actually SPEAKING the language.
This class is stressing me like last semester’s Public Speaking debacle. I’m getting to where I’m starting to get near-panic attacks. That’s not healthy. Not at all.
I’m going to see if I can meet with her either this week or next during her office hours. Hopefully she’ll have some insight on what I can do to help me learn the class content. I’m hoping that this class doesn’t become a GPA breaking mistake.
