Hi fellow TCK Ute, Congratulations and thank you for nominating me for this interesting blog award. Just like you I am enjoying the blog world, I do hope that one day soon (maybe in 2013?) we will meet in real life! greetings Janneke
Ps. is the new language you are learning Dutch?
Hi Janneke, it would be great if we could meet in real life! Let’s see how we can arrange that. The new language is not Dutch – ik spreek en schrijf al goed Nederlands – but Spanish. I have a good passive competence, but need to learn it properly in order to be able to speak it.
The meetup sounds like a good idea. I am learning Indonesian :). I have just completed a beginners course. It was great fun. Wishing you well with Spanish. Keep at it.
Wao, Indonesian! Great! I started Portuguese 8 years ago, then stopped because had to learn Dutch and now I’am first learning Spanish, but I have other languages on my list 🙂
Hello, a sincere, belated thank you for the nomination…sorry for being the newbie, I only now realized that action was required…I’ll try to figure out how to do this, but can I email you for help if my blogging skills aren’t quite adequate?
Hi Annika, don’t worry about this, no problem. You don’t have to do very much, just follow the instructions I gave in the post (“rules”). You can email me anytime 😉
