Learn Dutch (read all 9 entries…)
Eindelijk

I am getting reasonably good. In the village where I live I speak the local creole, fluently. So most people don’t want to speak Dutch with me (as I don’t speak Dutch as well as I do the native language) but when I am in the capital city or anywhere else in the country I can do pretty good.

I have even had long drawn out conversations (on limited subject matter – but it is something).

I am hoping to test at an Intermediate MID or High in October and then make it official.



explore the amazon (read all 3 entries…)
So what counts?

I travel a lot around Suriname, in and out of the jungle. I see crazy creatures (rhinobettels, jaguars, monkeys ect…) I eat strange things (Pirrahna, Iguana, Armadillo -which is very yummy). And I have spent quite a lot of time in the rainforest, which is part of the Amazon… but not in the river basin…

So does this count? I don’t know



learn to speak another language (read all 6 entries…)
Well I did it again!

In the last few weeks I have started to really pick up Dutch in addition to the creol Sranan Tongo I first learned when I moved to Suriname. So I am now tri-lingual… WHAT FUN!
