  1. Maybe practical to know: EU announces on Thursdays the new colorcode of EU countries, which change on Mondays. Most countries define their travel restrictments in these colors. https://reopen.europa.eu/en/ If tests are a requirement be sure take the right one, not every country accepts the same ones. I understand your excitement as our child moves to the other side of the border next month, and although it is relatively close in distance is is a different world in requirements.
  2. As you mention a love for detailed stuff: Iron beads? (that’s how its called here) It is not my cup of tea but dd liked it. Embroidery for kindergarten ? I think I was 5 when I got my first embroidery package. Weaving? Or maybe first spool knitting?
  3. I started to dye my own hair during one of the lockdowns and still doing it that way. I liked the dark brown in the loreal serie but it had a strong coconut smell which only disappeared at time I had to dye again. I didn’t like to smell like a coconut. I am using Syoss now, the color is a little to red in my personal tast but the smell is just flowerish: I can handle that 🙂
  4. 20 deaths, 20 missing in Belgium at this moment. Dikes are breaking. Coordination is in hands of the federal government now.
  5. By our (flemish) morning news there are 14 deads in Belgium now. The rain has stopped (at least where I live) so now it is keeping the fingers crossed dikes and dams won’t break through. Living in Belgium, but not in the East part.
  6. Elementary Greek is easy to self teach and written for elementary grades. I think it is a nice taster to start with. We worked also with Athenaze but I think it is harder to self teach if you have no Greek under your belt yourself. So you may start with a elementary program, and study ahead yourself the athenaze text. It might be nice to know that as Elementary Greek teaches biblical Greek it has a focus on learning bible verses in Greek, not everybody is equally interested in that
  7. Old Greek , Modern Greek or Biblical Greek?
  8. If my household has any organisation rule it is I try to store stuff where I actually use it. There are some exceptions for storing books and not-now-used-craft supplies, but the actual used stuff is where it is used…
  9. As EU citizen from country X living in country Y we get the vaccins in the country where we live. Citizens from this country, living outside the EU may choose to get the vaccin where they live, or travel back and get it here.
  10. I had to read some Judge Dee stories during Highschool: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/499653.Judge_Dee_at_Work?from_search=true&from_srp=true&qid=jNv50vsww8&rank=16 A Chinese mysterie has a totally different set up then I was used to, but it might be a nice addition if you need something for comparative writing / discussing assignments. It might be not really grade 10 literature standard, but nice to balance your program.
  11. I thought it was one of her roommates, but that is my connotation with pickwick papers too 🙂
  12. My course has a Russian Songbook: https://www.amazon.de/-/nl/dp/1899785264/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_nl_NL=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&dchild=1&keywords=Russian+ruslan+song&qid=1620581371&sr=8-1 I don’t own it yet as I am still in the ‘my cat drinks milk’ and ‘my horse eat apples’ stage...
  13. I think this is the ‘red grammar’ 8filltheheart is referring to: https://www.amazon.com/Сборник-упражнений-грамматике-русского-иностранцев-ebook/dp/B0184KH87U/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=По+грамматике&qid=1620579597&s=books&sr=1-4
  14. I am studying Russian for almost 6 weeks now and have not covered the cases yet, but learned some German during middle school, and failed the exams because nobody had explained me how cases work.. I think I would suggest to do some more English Grammar before starting Russian Grammar. You’ll need a reference grammar to explain grammar of other languages. Dutch hasn’t cases but we do have sentence syntax, if preposition is similar to the dutch ‘voorzetselvoorwerp’ it is that sentence part that starts with the fixed preposition that belongs to the verb. So ‘for’ in ‘looking for’ is a fixed preposition, which makes in the sentence: I am looking for my glasses for my glasses as the voorzetselvoorwerp I don’t have quick definitions. If it differs from Russian ignore my explanation 🙂
