Back in November of 2015 you learned that I decided to make this German ad/venture officially official and I signed up for a course with the Goethe-Institut to become certified to teach German as a Foreign Language. I've just completed the third module and corresponding project, which means I'm officially halfway through the course. Three modules down, three modules to go!
Zwischenbilanz literally means a "between balance," or "subtotal," so taking stock of where you are, assessing the past and the future. It's a time when you step back and see clearly where you've been and how that has changed where you're going.
Here's a Zwischenbilanz for you and a few infos on what it's been like to study teaching German.
Life doesn't wait for you to study.
Life most certainly didn't wait for me last year, when I had a several major life events happen all within a few months of one another. Despite my best efforts, it took forever for me to work through the first module. It was really disheartening. However, that all changed when I planned out the remaining modules and put it on my 2017 wall calendar.
