At the bus stop

H had an early meeting so I got a ride to the bus stop. An Arab man was cramming for an English test: facts about the state of Utah, which struck me as an interesting unit in such a class. I helped him with pronunciation and told him a few extra things about Utah. I told him my appreciation of the difficulty of Arabic from my experience at the Army Language School: Russian was a twelve month course but Arabic and Chinese were eighteen months. Hope I helped him out.
