But today was the first day in my reading and writing class that I didn’t feel completely stupid. We have a new teacher and as he was walking around to look at our writing he stopped at mine and was impressed. He said that it was like an artist.
I am not trying to toot my horn or anything…really before today each reading and writing class I left feeling a fool. I am pretty happy with how my spoken Arabic is going, but until today reading and writing has seemed impossible. The little pat on the back today makes it seem possible.
