Let's change that to December. I think I need a bit more time. :O

Wow, page 3. Crap. Been a while.

I've decided to put Swahili on pause and not take the DLPT. I've got a good reason. If I take the DLPT and score below 1+ (B1) on each part (listening, reading, speaking), then I cannot get any training from my employer. It's a weird system, which resulted in me not getting training in BCS because I'd taken the DLPT (after thinking I could get myself back up to my previous scores of 2-2+/B2) and scored below the 1+'s. It's weird: I have to either have no scores (thus a 0/0/0) or pretty good scores minimum (1+/1+/1+) or no soup for you!

So I'd like to get some Swahili training some day, so I'm not taking the DLPT/OPI.

Thus, I've started back on Old English! Fun fun fun. Back in the TY Complete Old English, on unit 2 now.

Just finished unit 4 of TY Complete Old English. Unit 5 is as far as I got two Christmases ago.
