Help! I'm drowning in verbs!

Yes, it has begun. The inevitable, the slow, and the excruciatingly painful journey that is learning to speak German.

The 'Intensive German Course' started last week. Originally, we were in a class of 8, but after the test to see how much German we all knew, we were a class of 3. The others were obviously way more advanced than us, so were promoted to the smart class. This is a great thing - but exhausting. Some days I think my head may explode.

Richard has been complaining that his brain is full, and has been forced to delete some information in order to make room for all the new stuff. Fortunately, he has started with the folder in his brain labelled 'Song lyrics from the 80s'.

Here's hoping that by the end of the course, we will be intense Germans.
