Die Schule's out

Today was our final German class.

We'd signed up for an intensive language course, which it certainly was, though it had the concurrent and inevitable 'free gift' of being an intensive socialisation process too.

The things we've learned about each other through daily exposure every weekday for the past month. Seemingly innocuous at first, in retrospect, it's quite incredible what our little exchanges in broken, unconjugated, ungrammatical and incoherent Deutsch have revealed about each person: our schedules, backgrounds, where we live, what we buy at the supermarket, etc.

A hodgepodge of photos from today's very relaxed session:




Manjit and Nicolas with 'der Ball' ...







... Daniel and Ramon during the number-guessing game ...





... Lino rising to the occasion as game moderator and scribe ...





... Daniel (the Younger) and Elma holding up the Young Persons' Front ...



... und Alles zusammen ...
