I do homework in the rain at the corner pub but otherwise have an uneventful day.

Nasal vowels in phonetics, not bad, I do pretty good with those. Another dictée in grammar class, this one much easier than the first. Other kids are having much more trouble with their complément objet direct et indirect (COD and COI) pronouns than I am. Saw another sign on rue Descartes on the house where the poet Paul Verlaine died.

Joel from Sweden and I were commenting that the class has gotten smaller. Some of the students have evidently dropped out. Only five more classes left in phonetics.

Kind of a boring day. Nothing much else to report.
