Learning German

I've been pushing Spanish and K used to be drawn toward Mandarin, but this year they both wanted different languages:  G wanted German and K is learning Italian.  Aurore is learning Spanish herself, setting a great example for the girls of hard work and consistency and they check in with each other, asking, "say something in...."

Aurore had a great idea for G: write in German to a nine-year-old girl Aurore knows in Luxembourg who speaks German.  G composed her letter and worked on the translation by looking things up in a translation dictionary, then Aurore worked with her to correct and explain.  I love Aurore's creativity and appreciate both of them for their perseverance; doing this was a lot of work!
