Today was a good day, if I consider the start of the day to be 11:40! I finished up a two week subbing stretch which means BANK!, plus the kids were great. I’ll soon be finished with my own little …bunch, which I’m not too bothered about, though I think I’ll miss the original few or perhaps more accurately, the ones I consider the core class.
In other news, my Taiwanese teacher/fried food vendor now has an older buddy who has the thickest accent in the world. I had been starting to wonder about when my ability to detect accents in Chinese would emerge (beyond the most basic this is Beijing and this is Taiwan), but I’ve totally got it down with this guy. Half of his words sounded like he was speaking Taiwanese! He was very helpful, but food words don’t get you far with building useful grammatical sentences. I really want to buy this Taiwanese book, but I haven’t had the money or the time to get into Taipei and find these people. Maybe next weekend!
