Actually I don’t want to write so much about the logistics training. Again it was intresting to see how Indonesian Red Cross does things and what they teach. In the meantime I started to have 8 hours of language training each week and this increaesed my ability to speak, so that I can at least understand the people in the office and in the bus. But for more elaboarte language such as sms, facebook comments or more specialised things like a seminar about a particular toppic its still not enough.
With the 90 hours that German Red Cross funded we were not able to to any meanigful work and how wonder, just imagine to send someone who learned 90 hours of German to a GRC Branch and expect meaningful work to be done.
Thats because I developed my new method of language understanding I have developed. I don’t understand what they say in in the seminars and workshops, so I get my hand to a copy of the powerpoint slides, print that out and then look up the work I don’t know in google translate or in a dictionary. That works fairly fine and at least I learn something in the seminars.
