Andrew's Arabic

Last month, Andrew took the OPI--that's the Oral Proficiency Interview, a government test for languages. We've been waiting for his score all month and trying to guess what he got. Andrew guessed that he would be at an Advanced: Mid level. When he took the test before we went to Jordan he didn't really do all that hot, so he thought he'd jump a level and then add a little bit more on to that.

Well, we finally got his score today. He got an Advanced: High. That's one step below a superior! Okay, so it's not really a step down, it's like a whole level down. He still has to study for a few more years before he could be a superior, and live in an Arabic-speaking for a while. But, Advanced: High is still a really good score.

Wow, the miracle of living in Jordan.
