Anna is going back to School!

Today we went to the British Council to sign Anna up for an English class.

She has decided, after spending a few weeks with us and dealing with anyone from Stuart to cleaners to the volunteers in the Tsunami relief centre that she needs to improve her language skills. So she took the plunge today and went through the enrolment procedure at the British Council for English lessons. There was an oral and a written exam, the first she has taken in 50 years, I think. But she was pleased to find that other people next to her spoke even less English than she does. This will be a big effort, two hours teaching three days a week with homework and tests. She will be fluent in no time, we think.
