W I N G S ! ! !In other news, German Flashcards, a good site for improving your German, taught me something super useful today:Sentence of the Day:

You don't know how many times a day I need to express that exact sentiment.
And finally, funny student story of the week. I have a very advanced student, and I'm always trying to challenge her with new vocabulary and slang. We were discussing "vegetarian" and "vegan" and so I decided to teach her "flexitarian". I asked her to guess what it might mean. She looked at me very seriously and said, "It sounds to me like a person with no moral character." My students are awesome.
