I’ve been in Switzerland for more than a year now and have no idea how to introduce myself in German. I can’t order from a menu. I can’t count past four.
I tried Rosetta Stone. I have no self motivation for talking to a computer screen.
I tried forcing my partner to teach me. But I didn’t try that hard. And he didn’t push it.
I need a teacher. A drill instructor. Someone to bring out my people pleaser side, to force me to cram the information into my skull so I’m not embarrassed in front of a class.
And now that I have shed the sole nighttime responsibilities for the little one, it’s time to get serious about language school.
There are a couple of options in Bern and my challenge this week is to find a program that is right for my (lack of) skills and schedule.
This shouldn’t be difficult, but given my propensity for slacking on the German front, this could take months.
