I just realized that I forgot to report how I did in my most recent Swedish class.
I got an E!
No kidding. The email said, “You have received a grade of E. Have a nice summer!”
I was sort of hoping that “E” stood for Excellent, but apparently it’s the new grade between D and F. But I passed!
I’m dating myself now, but an E would stand for excellent back in my day. However, the regular grades you got were A, B, C, D. E was reserved for stuff like effort and participation and not actually class grades.
Effort and Participation sounds like that’s exactly what they gave me. I didn’t seem to get any extra points for my wonderful Swedish writing assignments about Leatherface and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. They could have kicked me up to a D.
The topic alone was worth a C- minimum!
