Hebrew Success!

I just had my meeting with the director of the JTS Hebrew Department about the materials I studied last year.

The whole meeting was conducted 99% in Hebrew (I didn't remember the word for "proofreader's notes"), and it went swimmingly. He was pleased that I was the nerd in ulpan at Hebrew U who actually asked grammar questions, and was pleased with my grasp of the one article we discussed in depth.

One more semester of Hebrew in NYC and I'm DONE with Hebrew! (Where DONE = not really fluent, but a master nevertheless.)

In other news, I'm not allowed to talk to my assistant dean in English anymore, as I have demonstrated my fluency to her as well.
