Great first lesson!

Petra and I spent our first lesson chatting casually so that she could assess my abilities. I was really nervous at first but she made it so easy! She was also very responsive to my needs as a student and was more than willing to work with me on the lesson plan that I have. She even sent me home with a German-language pop culture magazine for some fun reading. I look forward to our next lesson.
