Jeg bestod! I passed!

Min mundtlig esksamen blev RIGTIG GOD!
Del 1:
Hver elev kom til eskamen med 5 ting klar at snakke om som en monolog...3 bøger eller artikler vi har læst og skrev på plus 2 projekter vi har lavet. Jeg bragte 3 artikler af mit "Fit Living" dansk kvinders blad--#1 var om Yoga, #2 var om Ting Kvinder Stresse Over og #3 var om en dansk kvinde som kan ikke blive gravid. Lærer gav os 5 stykker papir med #1, 2, 3, 4, 5 på dem og vi må valge 1 stykke uden kender hvad nummer de var. Min nummer var "emne 2" hvilken var "Min Projekt #2--MIN BLOG"!!! Kan I synes det?! Hun spurgde os at snakke to minutter om vores emne...jeg snakkede FEM MINUTTER! Det blev bedre end jeg ventede!

My speaking exam went GREAT!
Part 1:
Each student came to the exam with 5 things ready to talk about as a monologue...3 books or articles we have read and written about plus 2 projects we have made. I brought 3 articles from my "Fit Living" Danish Women´s Magazine--#1 was about Yoga, #2 was about Things that women stress about and #3 was about a Danish woman who could not become pregnant. The teacher gave us 5 pieces of papir with numbers 1 through 5 on them and we had to choose 1 piece without knowing what numbers they were. My number was "project #2--MY BLOG"! Can you believe it?! She asked us to talk for two minutes about our project.... I talked FIVE minutes! It went better than I ever expected!


Del 2:
Vi snakkede med en partner om et emne som hun valgte fra 6 valg-- ligesom et interview. Jeg spurgde min partner om "et sted du elsker" og hun spurgde mig om "mine bedsteforældre". Alting var perfekt, undtagen da jeg begyndte at græde så jeg snakkede om MoMo... men jeg blev ved med snakker, og jeg synes hun var stolt, ser ned på mig, fra himmel!

Part 2:
We talked with a partner about a subject she chose from 6 choices--like an interview. I asked my partner about "a place you love" and she asked me about "my grandparents". Everything was perfect, except when I started to cry as I talked about MoMo....but I kept talking, and I think she was proud, looking down on me, from heaven.


En overraskelse:
Før i dag, har jeg aldrig mødt læreren som gav esksamenen til vores klass. Da jeg sluttede min monolog, fortalte hun mig "Du lyder ikke ligesom du kommer fra den syd! Jeg kender, fra din accent, at du kommer fra amerika, men du taler meget fint!" Mit smil var MEGET STOR efter hendes kommentar! Nu, er jeg færdig med Modul 2, og flytter til Modul 3 på mandag! Tak for alle krysdede fingre og gode tankere!

A surprise:
Before today, I had never met the teacher who gave the exam to our class. When I finished my monologue, she told me "You do not sound like you come from the south! I know, from your accent, that you come from America, but you speak really well!" My smile was VERY LARGE after her comment! Now, I am finished with Module 2, and moving to Module 3 on Monday! Thanks for all the crossed fingers and good thoughts!

Tillykke med det. Jeg vidste at du kunne klare det. Håber at du godt kan komme videre med din dansk undervisning

Woohoo!! Told ya so ;)

You know, you should ask them how soon you can take the module 3 test because, believe me, you could pass it today. It's only reading and writing on the mod 3 test - both of which you can do extemely well.

I'm not surprised you passed with flying colors...you always do! Maybe the next module will be easier - I hope so for your sake.

Congratulations! What an accomplishment! You must be quite proud of yourself! We KNOW Mads is probably grinning from ear to ear that his Texan girl has become so proficient in his language.
