I’ve been so busy this week so it has been hard to find time to post.
I had been in SFI (Swedish for Immigrants) for almost a week (learning Swedish, obviously) in the introductory course that I was supposed to be in for four weeks. Well my teacher there said that the introductory course was going to slow and was too easy for me, so now they moved me up into a different class. Which kind of sucked because I had made a friend in my class!
Monica from the Philippians!
She is my age, and we are the only two people who are under 20 at SFI. She might join school at the gymnasiet I also study at.
Some more bad things about switching classes is that I was finally getting used to the schedule, but now I have an entirely new one. I am also in classes at the gymnasiet, just english and math for right now until I learn more Swedish. Before the english and math classes fit around my SFI schedule, now they are at the same time as SFI (all except 2 times). It’s important for me to go to both SFI and the gymnasiet because soon I will just be going to the gymnasiet, once my Swedish is better, and I need to be around my classmates.
Although the good thing about this switch is that I will be learning Swedish at a faster pace, which means I will get to go to the gymnasiet full-time sooner. It’s also more of a challenge for me, which I like. We are currently reading a much harder and longer text, but it was my first day in the new class today, and I think that by a week I will be caught up and it will hopefully get easier.
Anyways, it is what it is and it’s probably for the best it seems like! So that is basically why I haven’t been posting much, I come home from SFI and school and work on my Swedish. I’ve also had some hockey practices too, and of course family time.
This weekend I will be going to my host grandparent’s house (on my host mom’s side), which is about 2 hours away! They have a floating sauna on the lake, so let’s just say I’m very excited. I will post about the trip and more next week!
