I'll start on March 31 at 8:30PM twice a week for 2 months.
This course will just teach us Hiragana, Katakana, 20 basic Kanji and speaking basic sentences.
It's a course for very small groups, 5-8 people, so to encourage interactions and be able to really practice and be followed by the teacher.
I'm so excited about it XD
I'm so glad I got it, I found it before the Fair started,m in February. But waited till it was over to mention it, and then the exam thing happened and I postponed it again... thankfully I still found an open spot.
My father wasn't entusiastic about it, but ironically enough what won him over was my mother making a scene about the old issue of my pursuing an Oriental Languages degree.
I don't know if I mentioned it before here, but out of high-school this is what I wanted to do in university. Problem was that they had the degree only in Venice so I should have moved for it. My parents didn't let me, especially my mother.
But for the last 1-2 years she's been turning the issue around, saying that they were completely supportive of my decision and I was the one who chickened out.
I can't tell you how enraged this made the first few times... I've learned to ignore her, cause replying only lead to humongous fights.
But she made the mistake of starting this again at the dinner table, and my father called her on it, saying they were the ones who prevented me from pursuing that degree...
She kept denying it saying it was my fault and he let go of the issue after a while but it probably made him guilty, hence the fact he hasn't said another word against me taking this course :P
This was supposed to be short... =_=
Anyway, for those not interested in my japanese dilemma, here. Have a funny video :P
It's a commercial that's been running on our tv for some time, and I can't get it out of my head XD
