Still June 17, 2018.  I did not mention that our placements were given out this morning, but indeed, I am part of 1.5 B.  This would have been a disappointment before the test, but it seems right to me now.  After all, I have been studying Arabic for nearly three years now.  I have progressed very slowly, but with my heavy work schedule, this seemed right as well.  This evening our first meeting with our instructors was held from 6-7 pm.  We were given our class outline.  There are 8 students and two teachers (hence the big bucks for this school).  Our two teachers are native speakers, Egyptian and Algerian.  We receive our first homework assignment, and I am up until 2 am to get it done!
