My first Lego

I was deprived of Lego as a child. I grew up with cheap Chinese imitation which either fits too tight, too loose, or not at all. So, yesterday I bought myself the Back to the Future Lego set. After all, Denmark is the home of Lego. It took me ~2 hours to complete, but by golly, I legede godt.

More Danish

Danish Module 1.1 test and textbooks
Danish Module 1.1 test and textbooks

Pictured above is my unofficial test for Danish Module 1.1. The test consisted of a listening test (the teacher asking questions in Danish, and then we had to write our answers) and a writing test (we had to make conversations for some stickmen who are providing us with clues as to what they want to say). I managed to get a pretty good score for it. But that doesn’t necessarily mean anything!

So the whole Module 1.1 gang (except for 1 person who dropped out, 1 person who decided to retake Module 1.1, and 1 person who has switched to a later class) decided to proceed to Module 1.2. We also got a few new people: an American, another Spaniard, an Israeli, and a Serbian (although, we may have lost the latter as she could speak Norwegian, and therefore Module 1.2 would be too easy for her). This module also goes for 6 weeks – the same as Module 1.1. I find it hard to believe that we are now two-third through this module.

We are certainly progressing quickly. Module 1.2 seems to focus more on active conversations and reading long passages. We will have a test… an official one this time. The test will be conducted orally and consist of talking about a particular topic (which will be chosen randomly) and making stickmen conversation. I am actually rather anxious about this test. I think at the moment I am better at written Danish than in spoken Danish. But I guess this also gives me an incentive to get better at the spoken version.

On another note, I really should try to blog a bit more regularly.

Düsseldorf and Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

I recently went on my second Beyond Copenhagen trip (the first one was Malmö). I’ve finally uploaded the photos from that trip to Düsseldorf.

I’ve also uploaded the photos from my trip to the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (an arts museum).
