Ah — Language, Culture and History
A day and a half of pre-soviet and soviet era of my soon to be new location! Very interesting information but did become a bit glassy eyed at some points. The history and culture, religion practices and beliefs, social structures, tribal dynamics and power over a 4 hour period….. I am tired!
Interesting brief about interpreters and the best way to connect with the one that I’ll be working with from time to time! You know, there is a difference between an interpreter and a translator 🙂
Language class is a hoot and it’s fun getting to learn the basics of introductions, numbers, the 5 w’s, and specific verbs that will be helpful in the classroom.
Tomorrow morning bright and early we head out for our new location for the next 5 days! Leaving behind the BOQ living and welcoming tent living with my other adventurous co-workers! How I wish I had my Bose Sound Blocking headphones!!!!!
Let the 2nd week begin…
