The last few days have been pretty intense in terms of studying. I have hinted on this blog that the B1 course is too easy, although I am the weird nut that likes grammar. A few weeks ago my teacher asked if I would like to do the final exam for the class a few months early – so I would finish B1 just before Christmas, about two months earlier than expected. This just requires switching into a class that is almost done.
Of course I agreed, since 1) the class is too easy 2) if I can get into the B2 class a bit earlier, I might finish before the summer break. One can hope… Regardless, after B2 comes the NT2-II exam (for fun – the horror) so there is still a lot more work to do.
Officially I switch into the other class tomorrow, so I now go to class on Tuesdays and Thursdays (only). Thursday is a free day due to the Sinterklaas holiday, so tomorrow and the following Tuesday are the two class days before the tests begin. The tests are given on the 12th and 17th, with an individual speaking test given at some other time. We receive the results on the 19th.
Tonight’s class was a bit shorter – we had a test for chapters 4 through 6, though due to the craziness mentioned above I have finished the book (through chapter 12). Doing 5 chapters in under a week is a bit insane… but I did the same thing to able to skip the A1 class, way back when.
And the test over chapters 4 through 6? Just might be another 100%! But I have a feeling the final exam will be harder… But I’m ready for it.
