    De rien, p'tit. I've just run out of French, or I'd tell you to pay it forward.

    I did it, I did it! I passed all 3. Thanks so much to TeacherGroupie and to so many of you out there for your help, support and prayers. I was so darned scared to push that button and see my results..........I had already saved the money to take them all again in July. Oh my gosh. I am jumping out of my skin.
    Happy thoughts and crossed fingers to everyone else, I know we all did great thanks to all the advice and help we found here!!!!!

    This was just a major, major thing for me. It had been so many years since I had used or studied any of these subjects. Honestly, the fact that I passed them was the biggest surprise but I think I really got a boost in self confidence and realized that I am a lot smarter than I give myself credit for. This is a hard test, to me at least, and people close to me have never taken any sort of test like this so they think its no big deal but it is a big deal and I'm just really excited and have new faith in myself.

    (beaming)

    Now that's the best of all, glamis! That's perhaps the greatest side benefit of taking these things: the realization that, old voices notwithstanding, one really does have a better brain than one thought one did. Brava, indeed! And don't forget this, please.

    Absolutely,
    Anyone who reads this down the road when they are searching these posts to prepare. My biggest piece of advice truly is:
    BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!

    Glamis, huge congrats on your success. You must feel a huge burden lifted from your shoulders to get this mother of a test behind you...

    I am taking math/science in July. Any tips for that one you can share would be greatly appreciated. I am studying with a "new brain" and with an intent to learn it this time, and I already feel a different kind of understanding for it all. And maybe even there is some retention happening...but if you can share any sites, or anything about the m/s, I would appreciate it. I hope you celebrated big time last night.

    :woot: :cool: :woot: :cool: :woot:

    heavens........I sent you a pm. Yes, I did celebrate last night and yes that burden was heavy and I am relieved.
    I forgot to mention in my earlier posts that I took a couple of prep classes before my tests. If anyone would like info on these classes, feel free to send me a pm.

    Tiny hijack: petit_ecole, I was afraid that le payer en avant was going to mean 'pay it in advance'. How would one say the latter?

    heavens54, which is your big issue: science or math?

    I'm afraid that the phrase "Pay it forward" doesn't really exist in French, so you would have to translate it literally :cool:

    TeacherGroupie,

    Let me ask the expert, my hubby, who is a native French speaker. I'll get back to you on that question...but to my knowledge, a lot of our sayings do not exist in French.

    Welcome to A to Z, Mrs_D, and congratulations on passing.

    petit_ecole, I'll look forward to your husband's answer, and I hope he won't give you the "why are you asking me that??" look - but if he does, feel free to blame it on me.

    Bonsoir TeacherGroupie,

    So I checked with the better French speaking half, and as I suspected, the "Pay it forward" expression doesn't translate into French since they don't have this expression..sorry. Even my literal translation may not really work well, although it's close enough. I hope that helps?

    Bonne nuit!

    petit_ecole, that was just me getting curious and being a language geek. Come to think of it, I could've Googled the movie of that name to see what, if anything, it got rendered as in French. (The logic here is that "pay it forward" really wasn't a phrase in English either, till the book and/or movie...)

    Please thank votre mari for me.

    Hm, Mrs_D: I'll need to check out The Math Page. Thanks.
