Is this the appropriate forum for mentioning that my son just achieved a 4.0 during his final semester, bringing his total GPA over four years for his Simultaneous Baccalaureate in Spanish (with a minor in translation) and Philosophy to 3.5?
I considered IMHO, but then, it isn’t opinion, it’s fact. He rocks! In two languages, so far. Of course he is going to Beijing in a few months to begin his post graduate studies, in East Asian Studies, and teach English as a second language, so he will be essentially trilingual after that.
I could have tried ATMB, because he is a poster here, but he doesn’t like me mentioning him by handle. Too bad. No point in bringing it up in GD, ‘cause who could possibly debate it, the boy is become a man, and done it well! An “A” average, two degrees, and, by the way, before China, he is invited back to the Univ. of Salamanca for annother semester abroad (his third). What’s to debate? He defines “to rock.”
Did I mention that he is a kind and decent man, gentle and given to wry wit, and a keen sense of the ridiculous? Should I bring up the fact that he accomplished the above educational excellence on his own? I didn’t send him, he went. This accomplishment is all his. I just get to gloat.
