As GTS has to go to Peoris for Illinois Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ICTFL), no JCC/GTS dinner in Novemeber and the next dinner will be in December 3rd! I hope many would remember to show up in December! For Next year (year 2011), JCC dinner will move to the SECOND Friday of the month for many reasons. Hope everyone has nice Halloween night with lots of fun!
Time really flies! Since my daughter began learning ice skating, usually I go skating with Ema. Having been skating back in 70s and early 80s, my legs are still remembering how to skate thankfully though getting tired soon! This is the only time I am sort of exercising. So, we got a family skating pass from the Park District. By the way, Japanese 1101's 4th test is now underway and the average score is probably about 80%, which is good. After mid-term verification period, 40% of originally registered 1101 students has gone and classes are all got slim! I hope that those who remains in classes would survive at the end.

1101 students took their 3rd test and most of them revived as the average score of the test got over 80%! By now quite a few students became ghost and have been beamed up somewhere. Out of original over 50 students in the morning, there seems to be a little over 30 solid students now and hopefully all these members will pass onto 1102. 2201 has good cheerful 15 royal members longing for challenges over challenges and enjoy them. Waubonsee Community College Students are suffering from the class format of 3 hours in one day of the week and I do sympathize them though we have to go forward! 2251 has only 3 energetic challenge-loving students having fun once a week in a very relaxing manner.

1101 classes completed their 2nd test and the average score of 70% drove some students away from continuing the class. 2201 class' second test was also completed with the average score of 80% so we can clearly see 2201 students have been more committed and devoted their time comparatively. GTS/JCC dinner was rather small but I was quite happy to see some rare faces! It is getting colder and we should plan ice skating gathering soon!
