So, I started escuela today. I am taking an intensive German course - 3 hours every Wednesday and Friday.
Today, we focussed on a couple of things, but my 'homework' consisted mainly of practices with the following word:
TROTZDEM: regardless, nevertheless, yet, but
Ich bin krank. Trotzdem gehe ich zur Schule. (I am sick. Nevertheless, I am going to school.)
Ich bin krank. Ich gehe trotzdem zur Schule.
It seemed like a pretty sophisticated word to me, until I heard little four-year-old Filippa use it! Mother of Zeus!
