My mother is from Denmark. I never really learned Danish though, I can only understand. But I don't really speak at all... So I thought I would try learning. My mother has always been very bad at teaching me (mainly because I think she doesn't feel like keeping it up) so I thought I would get a book. I told my friend Elina about it who is very into learning new languages and so we decided on this book and then we'll both learn so we can use it as a secret language at school! Hehehe... :D So we will see how it works out...

Talking about school, it was our first day today! It was great to see everyone again although we didn't really do anything. It was just the day of the "Agiasmos" which means.. blessing (?) I think. Basically a priest comes and he has a little bunch of basil, a cross and a little bowl of water. He blesses the water. Then we all line up and he wets our heads one by one with the basil, one by one, dipping it in the bowl of blessed water. Oh and we have to kiss the little cross too.

Anyway so we are getting our books tomorrow and we are having 4 hours (actually 4 45-minute lessons) ! I am very excited! :D

Βασικά είμαι πεπεισμένη ότι τα Δανικά θα τα σπάσουνε και ότι θα είναι γαμάτο αν μάθουμε και δεν καταλαβαίνουν οι άλλοι τι λέμε. (αρκεί βέβαια να καταλαβαινόμαστε εμείς ΧΔ)
