how do i take it?
So I just got out of my translation class. The one where the prof scares the beejeezers out of me... its English to French. Not my forte.
Yes, I've lived here for 3 years now but I havn't written in French since I got my B.A. in 2003 so I have a lot of relearning as far as grammar and stuff goes. Plus all those words I've learned in the last 3 years? Yeah, NO idea how to spell them!
So today she calls on me. First time I've offered my translation. Did 3 sentences (which is a lot!) then she says:
"What is your mother tongue?"
"Oh really? Thats suprising"
Uh... surprising how? Surprising good? Surprising bad?
This lady has no facial expressions, she's one tough cookie so to speak. Not that I'm caught up in what she thinks of me or my work but still it was so neutral... could have gone either way.
