It's not too late to start the Coptic course (with me) at GlyphStudy.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

SC tracking:
-19 pages in Leviathan Wakes L-R (Russian).

Another good (2-hr) Russian (DLI) class. Good stuff. She also answered my questions about relationships, seeing how we're about to have a daughter-in-law! невестка for those playing at home. Don't even start asking about what my son is called by his in-laws, or what I call my DIL's sister. The freaking Slavs and their relationship terms. Oy.

Only took 34 years since my first DLPT, but I finally got a 3/3 in Russian. w00t!

OPI was last Tuesday. Hoping to get results back this week. Felt good, definitely 2 territory. Got a 2+ last time (Aug 2019). A 2+ again this time would just be icing on the cake.

I think a lot of us also missed you - I certainly did and just wondered the other day where you had gone. I see it was to get your Russian to the next level.

Good to see you're back.
