Relearning Samoan

March 28, 2011

Samoan lessons during my initial Peace Corps training was shear hell. Everyday going to the classes taught by Samoans was wrought with terror in hopes I would not be called. Nothing made sense and no one could understand even the few phrases I spoke. I did end up just passing the final exam with a "Low Intermediate" proficiency rating.

Now I am reviewing and teaching myself. Amazingly, I can't believe how well I am doing. I get 100% on my self-corrected exercises, even my pronunciation is flawless. A+ is what I give myself.

Who am I kidding?
