Looks like I'll tough it out with 2 jobs again (hoping they fit in my time slots). Ah well, my frustration ends up being drowned into drinking more alcohol. Ein maß Paulaner Salvator will take care of everything.

Nice! Viel Gluck!
I am trying to schedule my classes for next semester so I can take German. I am thinking about minoring in german. I mean it makes sense for me, I am a german citizen and a lot of engineering companies are in germany. If I could open my opportunities by speaking the language fluently then it could be really helpful!

Speaking of which, I broke up just this week (with a German fan coincidentally :P). God, the run up to that was a cause of great frustration. Good riddance though, it seems we both wanted that.

Careless pedestrians who try to cross the road between cars standing still in traffic without looking in any direction but straight ahead. :evil: I swerved to the right to avoid him and fell off my bike. Lucky for him I only touched his toenail but I got a broken indicator and a couple of scratches to spray.

The most imp thing is that you are fine...
As for the lessons... Hmmm just arrived from lesson #2 again with this damn grammer... The sad thing is that here they teach for the exam and not for the appriciation of the subject... For me to understand what I read and listen is just fine...
And by the way on my way I ve almost hit a man who crossed the road zig zaging between traffic... In Hamrun next to Kuncizzjoni!

Ahh damn, that sucks. As one of my professors said, "don't get depressed over one girl (or guy) there are 14,000 other opertunities on campus"

Haha I don't want to hear your frustration German-American! "This sucks going to a school with tens of thousands of people where the ratio of female to male is probably 4:3". Some of us had it much worse!

Not really, it's been a long time coming. I went into a conversation intending to end things only to have her do so first. :lol: So I guess it's mutual. I do think it's the kind of thing that will eventually cool down and we'll end up friends though. I wouldn't mind that.

Lots of focus on grammar? That is unfortunately probably ineffective. You seem to have the right idea when speaking about the appreciation of the subject.

This video might interest you. Nothing to do with German (except for an example) but it's a good explanation of one of the main theories of language acquisition. As a foreign language teacher myself, I believe it is effective. Results do seem to support it consistently too. Interestingly, however, it takes as a starting point theories which are most likely not true (in my opinion at least).

The number of licensed motor vehicles on the roads at the end of September was 344,543, up by one per cent over the previous quarter, the NSO said today.
Of these, 79.2 per cent were passenger cars, 13.9 per cent were commercial vehicles, 5.7 per cent were motorcycles, while buses and minibuses accounted for less than one per cent. [source]

Dativ vs Akkusativ :evil:

Just out of curiosity, had you taken a year off due to lack of time, and did you know Dativ vs Akkusativ before that?

I've been conducting some research on Third Language Acquisition this weekend and came across an interesting point that sociological factors play a huge role in language acquisition. The reason is that we have limited resources (for example, time) due to these factors and the availability of these resources can change (for example, this year you can dedicate 4 hours a week to German, next year you can only dedicate 1 hour, so there will be a bit of regression). It reminded me of your situation.

Hope lessons are going well again btw. :)

I could not take time off from work. No actually we covered the subj in the first yr but still it is not easy to grasp.

Oh well, there has to be one winner. I know the All Blacks are the best team in the world and losing to them is no shame. I'm frustrated when people don't put the effort in for group projects and leave things until the deadline which they did a half-assed job in screwing others up.
