Yesterday’s class was the final class before the two test days (tomorrow and next Tuesday). It was pretty relaxed though you could really tell who wanted to be there and who didn’t. Most people hadn’t done the homework. Just me (what else is new) and another woman who admitted doing it on the tram on the way over.
Tomorrow is the writing test as well as the speaking test. I am doing the speaking portion before the class itself begins, so luckily I can leave as soon as I am done with the writing component. That’s easily my strength thanks to all of the emails I sent to Marco while he was at work!
I was also able to find out what book we’ll be needing for the next course, B2. I was happy to find out that it was De Finale (The Final, or ‘The End’). I have seen that book before — it is a textbook that helps prepare you for the NT2-II exam. From what I have seen it does look look like a good book for that.
There’s a slight chance my B2 course might start in the first week of January. My teacher said that a B2 course started this week (since the school receives money from government of The Hague they probably wanted to get additional money on the 2013 books) so it will only run for two weeks before the holidays start. I wouldn’t mind joining in week 3. But even if that doesn’t pan out, there’s probably another B2 course starting next month as well.
We’ll see how it goes…
