So I had my verbal placement test. It took two teachers to give their fair opinion that I belonged in the next level of the beginner class.
I put in an intermediate writing test two weeks before, which I didn’t notice at the time. I just picked one that didn’t look too easy. So they were gentle in telling me that I wasn’t intermediate level material, but I sure did fit in as a next level beginner. Four years, and still a beginner. But isn’t that true of many of life’s endeavours? No?
Frankly, and don’t tell them this, but frankly, after my verbal skills test, I was expecting to be sent down a level.
