4 things I learned in SFI

1.  Abby (or at least the sound, not the spelling) means blue in persian.

2.  Just because his name is Tali, does not mean he is a part of the Taliban. (I was introduced to everyone and this one guy said, 'My name is Tali, like the Taliban, but I'm not a part of the Taliban'...I found it very funny.)

3. Just because you can ask a simple straight forward question in Swedish does not mean you'll get a simple straight forward answer back. Thus resulting in  you not attending the second class of the day because you thought that's what the teacher told you in overwhelmingly fast Swedish...which makes you so frustrated you cry and forget to lock your bike when you're home. (Luckily Nelly was not stolen from me. Thank GOD)

4. In the course of my higher education, I have begun 3 different language courses, resulting in 4 semesters and 1 SFI. 4 out of the 5 'first days' I've cried.

What is it about language courses that always makes me cry a little bit? Here's for a better day tomorrow.
