Day 29 – Farewell but not Hej då

Old father time has caught me up with me readers. Due to circumstances beyond my control I’ve been forced to abandon my Swedish studies for the time being…and flee the country. My ultimate goal was to write an article in svenska when I completed the course in the summer but for now my accomplishment is scribbling an email with poor grammar to my teacher. I’ve enclosed it below for your amusement and yes I know it sounds like I’m on the run like the Von Trapp family in The Sound of Music. I will post a proper update in the next few days to bring you all up to speed with what’s happened as trust me there is a lot to tell.

Hej Britt Marie

Det är slut! Jag måste flytta till Irland tidigt i morgon bitti. Jag vet inte när jag kommer tillbaka till Sverige just nu. Min flickvän söker job i Irland, Storbritannien, överallt! Ingen job för journalists i Sverige därför måste vi flytta.

Jag kommer att sakna SFI och minna nya klasskamrater. Tack för allt, du är en jätte bra lärare.

Ha det bra

Patrick

P.S. Jag ska plugga svenska på Irland. Jag lovar :)

P.P.S. Jag ska titta svenska hollywood fruar på internet varje vecka!

Lie of the land (Blogweiser) »

"Way up here in Northern Europe, beautiful places to swim are everywhere. When the sun is out, the water is a perfect blue, inviting you to jump in. The other day, a friend of mine did. He hopped in, got out, dried off, and then told me one of the most common lies you’ll hear..." READ »
