A bad day but we move forward

As I write this, news about our guests from Hong Kong have become a trending topic. I can’t add more to what has been said. The president has apologized.

Doing it in Deutsch

I just finished a 2-week, 1 to 5:15 pm intensive course for Deutsch A1.1 at the Goethe Institut.┬áSo far, I have to say that I’m truly enjoying this new experience.
