The Italian Test, Your Prayers, and My Future Posts
I think I'm finally down to being only one post behind. I will try to get that one up here soon, but then I'm going incommunicado for at least the next week. A week from today we have our Italian language proficiency test, which is more than a little worrisome. We essentially need to prove the equivalent of somewhere between three and four good college semesters' worth of knowledge and ability in Italian- proving our "independence" with the language, if not our fluency. Since I have now had only 10 good days of it here and 12 good lessons back home, I predict that I have a bit of a challenging week of studying ahead of me. Worst case scenario, I have to retake it in December, but please pray for me and for all of us first-years, especially those of us who are not particularly gifted linguistically *cough* *cough*. I will let you know how that went when I know something... May God bless and keep you all. Be assured of my prayers.
