The challenge continues (Second day in the school)

Thursday happened to be cold and rainy day. My husband didn’t go to work, so while I am preparing myself to school; he stays on the bed. It was really unusual that I am the one preparing to go, while my husband was still lying on the bed and trying to rest as much as he can. I woke up so early, even though I felt like still want to get few more hours of nap, but I can’t because once I did go back to bed then I will be screwed and never make it to school. (Giggling)

My activity book.

I made myself a coffee, and as fast as I can; I get my bigger bag where I can put my books. My teacher told me to bring my books to school so she wouldn’t need to photocopy every lessons we will discuss. So, even if it’s against to myself; to bring huge bag, I still did! After preparing, I went to bedroom and my husband was a little awake. He asked, “Why are you early? Your class starts at 2:00 pm.” Continue reading

The challenges I made for myself!

Since I started attending formal language class; I also make my own list to challenge myself and to see if class is actually helping me. I started last Monday (September 10) for 90 minutes. I got 2 days break because I visited Gynecologist Tuesday, and Wednesday my teacher is busy so I  too. Wednesday as my first day to challenge myself.

My husband went to office in the morning (Wednesday), and so I woke up a little late, because I don’t have anything to do. (Not because I am lazy) Well, when I woke up, I decided to plan how to make my day useful and at the same time, challenging!

I prepared my money and I think shopping is something I can do as a good start. I don’t really care what to buy (nothing specific). I went out, while it’s raining. I saw this young boy (probably from school) I greeted him “Dobrý Den”; and so did he. After that, I was kind of happy. I told myself “That’s a good start for today”. (Giggling) Continue reading

My first day in the school.

Before I give you a hint about my first day in language school, I would like to apologize for not posting new article often this days. I am kind of busy, and never had any chance to sit and write; but I really do appreciate the fact that most of your guys (readers) are keeping it up to stop-by and read my previous and old articles.It’s really nice. Thank you.

So here is what happened today. I woke up around 10:40 in the morning (hardly) because I am worried to be late in my very first appointment to school today. Therefore, I did what must be done before I prepared myself to school. I kind of having this problem in my stomach, so I really thought I will need to cancel; but so far I felt better before 1:30 in the afternoon; which is good because  have to be in the school around 2 in the afternoon.

Since I don’t know what to wear, I took photos of myself,and sent it to my husband while he was at work. I asked his opinion about clothes I’m going to wear. (which I know is kind of weird being so confuse of what to wear) Well, I luckily my husband approved so it was really nice feeling.

I would like to look really nice and simple.

Czech language formal class

I have been studying Czech language at home for like a year now. I can’t say that its a regular basis studying but I think I just put enough time to learn and not pressure myself. Hoping that it might help while I am still waiting for a formal class to start. Today, my husband and I visited the language school. I am happy and finally finalized the schedule that I have been picked. I am excited and really looking forward to start attending the class. I meant, new face,new local to mingle, and new people to practice my Czech language. I guess I am moving farther enough this time.

So the administrator of the school asked what book I am using to learn at home. I said, “Czech step by step” I am lucky that they will be using same book like I am using. She was asking me how far I am,and my husband responded to her;that I am in Lesson 17.She was impressed,she said I probably know so much. Well, I guess so but I still wanted to make sure I am not missing anything from every lesson. It is important for me to not mess up, because I am too scared that if I will forget something, then it will be another thing to review over and over again.

She gets all the details she needed from me, asked how long I wanted to spend in studying, and if I prefer to go to school or the teacher will go to our home.

My husband and I decided to choose the school, because it is the main purpose of why I am studying. To go out of the house, mingle with others and be much more comfortable in talking to other people. I also like it more.(Giggling)

So after the arrangements, I was so surprised when she actually ask if I wanted to work for them as one of the teacher. I am happy, even it is just an offer. I like to hear it that way. Oh I am just happy today. I just don’t know how to explain it to you guys.. (Giggling)

So then, I am happy to formally announced that I I’ll be going to school, on the 10th of September.

CZECH LANGUAGE: I AM LEARNING AND KEEP LEARNING

Czech language or Cestina is beautiful language, but of course since I am new into developing myself in order to learn this language; I might say it’s really complicated ones. Well, I guess everything is just about confident and trying. I have mentioned before how shy I am to try something new in my life. I am scared to be embarrassed which leads me to not talk much and everything I learned is just kept in my mind and never practice it much as it should be. I don’t socialize with people, and never talk to some other local here in Czech Republic except from my in-laws and other friends.

Nowadays, I am doing pretty well with this language. I am able to speak, understand, communicate a little and most of the time; we are using it when my husband and I were talking at home. It’s good to have practice though, because once you learned to practice it at home you are also starting to gain a little confident which can be developed anytime soon.

The only problem is that, some words have same pronunciations but different meaning which is sometimes hard to notice in the sentences. Continue reading
