I love happy endings. RenaRd , well, I was referring to the two volumes of short stories I recently bought, the ones you and Ms RenaRd were taking such a pleasure in while reading them together. Not to the authors altogether, I thought this was clear from the context.
I should have described it more clearly. Addendum for When I came home yesterday night rather late, as we had a guided tour at our lab I already found a pickup note for getting the package. Having said that, we don't have a post office in our village or rather community as it consists of 4 villages any more - but, our local supermarket a chain dedicated to smaller communities has a postal service. This market is open Monday-Friday from 6 am to 8 pm - much longer than any post office, so very convenient! I will pick it up very soon I do hope fraudulent emails and absconding packages have all been sorted out.
I had some fake mails from the Amazon a while ago at a when there was quite a spate of them, so I was forewarned. And I have been even more careful what I open since then But it is bona fide, and may lead to some work, so all is well. Mr J, Son2 and I spent last week in blazing sun and a bracing northerly gale straight from Russia - it is very far to the east, after all. We had been planning to go for some time, but this is the first winter with flights to Bari from here! It's a stunning region, and I would recommend it unreservedly.
There is so much to see that we barely scratched the surface.
We saw the breathtaking caves or grottoes, as the English leaflet insists on calling them at Castellana and the trulli at Alberobello, the castle of Otranto and Castel del Monte, and of course a number of churches and cathedrals one of which even possesses a thorn from the crown of thorns and another one of which contains the mortal remains of Saint Nicholas. In addition to this the people were charming, the food and wine were delicious and the roads much better than in other parts of Italy where we've been I think my favourite city was Lecce which is about as far east as Budapest!
And as a lot of Puglia is quite flat, there are many cyclists and cycle networks in and around the towns.
Better maybe : rausekeln? I don't really know what they are doing, so I can't say if that's the right choice of words.
I know, those are nuances which may be difficult to get for non-native speakers, and also others may disagree and find it ok. I just wanted to say that I sort of stopped short when I read it. Better maybe: rausekeln? Please correct me as needed. So maybe: Verschrecken? Since I don't follow soccer or any team sport, for that matter closely, I really don't know about the state of their negotiations or search for new talent. Closer to the home front, as it were, we managed to sign up our son 4th grade at the time being for a coveted spot at the local Gymnasium.
Since he has the required good grades no to mention his sister at the same school already, which is taken into account we should have taken this more lightly lightlier? They do turn away a good number of prospective students every year, even though they will be having 7 incoming classes at 25 or so pupils in Like his sister he'll be attending a special experimental "fast track" program, where the whole class skips the fourth year together.
We'll see how that goes I think vergraulen would be the word. Not as strong as rausekeln and probably more what hm--us meant. If this is a nomal G8 high school - does this mean then, that he'll graduate after 7 years in the end, if they skip the fourth year??
I must say, I feel a bit sceptical about such an idea. Why shorten this precious time the young people can spend to gain a good general education by yet another year? What for? To get them into professonal training or specialized university studies, and eventually into working life even earlier? If this is a nomal G8 high school - does this mean then, that he'll graduate after 7 years in the end, if they skip the fourth year?
Yes, that's the idea.
They are not learning less, just doing it faster my daughter, who's officially in 6th grade now, just started with the 7th year curriculum. There is a comprehensive pre-selection process to make sure students are up to this. It's an experiment Schulversuch supported by a bunch of psychologists and educational scientists from the University of Vienna. I was quite skeptical at first, too, but my daughter's been doing it for a year and a half, and she couldn't be happier.
Because they can? As I've said, they are not learning less. On the contrary, in the later classes they go well beyond what is taught in the regular system. The key concept being "Acceleration" for grades and "Enrichment" for grades Students pretty much get to choose their subjects in a system of courses, something that's still the big exception in Austria, common as it may be in other countries.
That said, skipping a year has always been possible in Austria and Germany, surely?
It's not very common, though, since there's a whole bunch of other issues attached being the youngest in class, losing one's circle of friends, etc. These problems are minimized in this program, since they're all pre-approved to "jump" together, as it were, and the teachers have three years' time to prepare them for it. Carullus , how wonderful that your son got into the school of your choice.
I do hope the experiment works well for him and your daughter as well, of course. I daresay I would have needed less time to learn all that was required for some subjects at school — but considerably more time for others. Of course it depends on the quality of the teaching, too…. Anyway, the caves at Castellana are of this kind, and then some.
While we were waiting for the guided tour to start, we met a few cats, one of whom I believe was employed by a tourist trap, as she was particularly friendly, inviting people to come and stroke and tickle her. The caves were discovered in the s, when a courageous man decided to venture down into the mundus that had been known forever.
Sometimes animals would fall in and disappear, and plant matter, too, of course, and the noises and smells of decomposition together with a degree of phosphorescence meant that people had been reluctant to get too close to it. The itinerary is about 1. Many many years ago I travelled with my older brother in Spain for vacation. We both liked to visit caves and during a leisurely tour we saw signs on the road saying "cava".
So we followed those signs but were rather surprised not to end between columns but bottles. This cava was a manufactory for sparkling wine! The owner himself gave us a very informative tour and we had a tasting as well. Unfortunately, we could not try and take more at that time, as there was no EU and customs were inhibiting export. Some update about virus' son's about-to-leave journey to Japan: Finally, the organisation found a family at least part-time - he will stay at their place until August and the Japanese embassy has sent the "CoE" certificate of elegibility.
So, we are happy to have an address and are about to write to the family and will go to the embassy in Berne next week in order to get the visa. They were exploring caverns which are numerous in Sauerland and I was invited to visit one of them. So far, it was no public area and we had to pass a small barred entrance which we only could enter with a key. We all were dressed in with?
The guide knew the cave quite well and I just had to trust him. It was very interesting and exciting, e. He told me from down there "it is half a meter and then you hit the ground again" In other places we had to climb, to crawl etc. My first thought was "what if this rocks falls on us just now", and, then, "Why should it do so exactly know when it has been like this for thousands of years". It was a great experience! Not for someone with claustrophobia, though. Sind vergraulen, verscheuchen und abschrecken wesentlich unterschiedlich?
Wogegen vergraulen vielleicht eher mit englischem to gross someone out or to cause someone so much 'Grauen' that they leave of their own accord? Now, we got a spot in a Catholic girls only school for her, which was not out first choice at all. Later we had the possibility to get her into the local Gaelscoil, which teaches all subjects in Irish.
