More from French Class

Le prof showed us this video before handing back our midterms from last week. If you can imagine the listening portion being worse than this representation of how the oral part of the exam went, then you have a pretty good idea of how I’m doing in the class. I laughed pretty hard, and yet, “suis-je ‘bothered'”? Oui.

When the bell rang at the end of class today, I gathered my things, and after I returned my exam to le prof, I said, “Je d├ęteste …!” And a classmate heard me, and she asked, “What?” Then, matter-of-factly, I said, “Cette classe.” Then she laughed really hard and asked if I was serious, and I told her I like the class, I just don’t like the grade I’m getting, and that it makes me mad. She could relate.
