Candy Candy Manga Rambling Part V: In which there can be one and only one ending

I don’t know how many times I’ve chanced upon comments about readers expressing their disappointments over the ending of the Candy Candy manga.

“That’s it? Where’s the happy ending?” 5,061 more words

Learning a culture by living a language

So, I watched Frozen yesterday. But, not like you’re thinking – I watched it in Portuguese.

I know what you’re thinking. Why, Vane, why?

Well, person, I’ll tell you: because I want to learn Portuguese. 497 more words

[La France] 巴黎索邦密集班心得

上完索邦冬季密集班也有好一陣子了(新學期都開始了…),趁著在烤鹹派的空檔XD來寫點東西。

在報名隔天做完分班測驗後,就等開學前一兩天學校email通知班別跟上課時間(有時候會跑到垃圾郵件去),我被分到中級班(本來以為會被分到初級班)。密集班一個禮拜上滿25個小時,每天5小時,固定1小時的發音課(phonétique),還有4小時的文法課,中間會有通勤(從發音課教室到文法課教室)跟午餐時間。

上課的方式當然因為老師的部會有些差異,早上兩個小時通常是文法作業檢討和練習,午休後還有兩個小時就會練習口說(小組討論然後上台發表)、聽力、閱讀測驗,還有上幾篇文學類的文章(也就是期末考口說的內容),我們小考還滿多的,一個禮拜至少有兩次,文法幾乎是每周必考,然後另一個小考就是聽力或閱讀,也常考動詞變化(這種算是小小考,10分鐘內考完)。每天當然都有作業,文法作業是一定有的,偶爾會有寫作作業,上一整個學期下來有點疲倦但是真的很充實。

學期末有期末考,分成手寫跟口說,手寫的部分包括文法、閱讀、聽力跟寫作,中級班在RER B線Laplace站附近的Maison des examens考試,每個級別考試的時間跟地點有些差異;口說則是依學校安排每個班級的考試時間,考試地點就在原上課地點,進去就抽題目,準備十分鐘左右,可以做筆記,但當然不能帶上課筆記啦~我覺得口說應該是最簡單的吧XD 考試結果大概兩週後公布,就在rue de l’Estrapade那邊貼考試通過的名單,如果要參加結業典禮的話就下樓領取典禮服(這件就是送你的,所以你上幾學期就可以拿幾件XD),典禮當天會頒發證書,上面會有成績,口說跟寫作的成績會另外標出。沒有參加典禮的人就要另外找時間去學校拿證書囉~

我覺得來法國的第一個學期上密集班是不錯的選擇,除了時數真的上足很扎實之外,每天五個小時跟同樣的一群人在一起也比較容易交到朋友:)
