The coolest thing about learning a language is when it starts to permeate through my thick skull and words and phrases begin to trickle into my vocabulary. I think I really scared our teacher today, because when I understood something (razumijem!) I would grin my dorky, gleeful smile. In retrospect, I probably looked too dumb to have understood anything. The only way to express my joy of not being a complete fool . . . was to look like a complete fool.
Ahh, the joys of comprehension.
