So...we were supposed to be leaving the area sometime in October, but that has now changed. Jake got what's called 'rolled'. It means that they're giving him an opportunity to go back in the program, and get a better foundation in his language. It's actually a really good thing for his school, and his old classmates told him that they were jealous that he was getting to do it. It's not that he failed. He's getting an opportunity to succeed more. You actually have to have a high enough GPA to make them think that it's worth it, but a low enough GPA where they're worried that you might not pass the DLPT on the first try. So, now he's basically guaranteed to pass the DLPT on the first try, and with a much higher score (which means more mula monthly). We will now be in the area until sometime next July. They didn't need to send him back that far, but unfortunately I guess it was the only class that could take him...so we'll be here for quite a bit longer!
The good news (besides what I was saying about passing the DLPT) is that we're already moved into our new big house, so we won't be stuck in that tiny apartment for an extra 9 months! The bad news is that I'll have to try and make new friends, because all of ours will be moving away pretty soon! Also, we won't be making it back to the East Coast this year...we'll have to wait! I myself will be making a trip back to NC in April, but since Jake will have class he won't accompany me. Anyways, that's the big news in our life for now. Ta Ta Folks!
