So, last week was the first week of class. We had a lot of English grammer review to give us a common terminology with which to discuss our new language with our teachers. We also got a lot of intro information on the culture and some good study tips and analysis of our personal learning styles.
My small group is rather interesting. There is me and a SFC from Special Forces here for his second language. Then there are 3 Army and 1 Marine private. That is my whole class. We have 4 native Afghans as our teachers, dedicated to our group.
I have also fallen in love with a new sport, or a very old sport new to me. Its called Buzkashi or goat polo. You play it on horseback and the goal is to snatch a headless calf or goat carcass from the ground, run around a post and toss the carcass into a pit to score. All the while, the other team is attempting to pull it from you. Whips are encouraged. I cant wait to play! Here are some video links:
