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!
