He understood "a little," learned from his father who came from Denmark, but he said it was about six months before he really caught on to the language and felt he could understand everything being said and could converse intelligently in Danish. Marie had had an American friend last year from whom she had learned some English, including many slang expressions. While in Denmark Jan took a c om b i n a t i on chemistry-physics course, biology, world history, religion, English, German, Danish, woodshop, a combination algebra-geometry-math course and P.E. He also attended a third grade Danish class on the side to help him pick up the language. The English class was strictly British English and when he pronounced words in American English he was corrected; for instance, the word "either", he was corrected when he pronounced it "'eether,'" it had to be "eye-ther." "Command" was wrong when pronounced in the American manner, he was corrected to "commond." He said he noted several instances when the teacher pronounced words incorrectly, even from a British his class took to a school in northern Denmark. They took bicycles along and spent the week riding through little towns sightseeing. At this time he still had not learned to write in Danish so he got out of all the written reports on different aspects of the trip which the others had to do; he just had fun. Girls in both Sweden and Denmark are more likely to wear pants to school than a skirt. In fact, Jan said, he met several Danish girls who didn't own a skirt. He didn't notice too many differences between an American school and a Danish one, but felt there was a better attitude between students in Denmark. He saw no teasing or bullying, no fights between students, more freedom due to "not so many little rules" and said it seemed like everyone was included in everything in a classroom. There seemed to be no discipline problems at all, perhaps due to the fact that students are treated more as adults than children, and proper behavior is taken for granted. He found no trouble making friends except for the language barrier at first, but said he was completely accepted right coming to visit their American relatives in Belfair when they are older. Jan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jorgen Mathiason of Tiger Lake, has a sister, Brita, 9, who is going to stay with Marie's family in Sweden when she is 13. Jan's father is from Denmark, his mother from Sweden. They came to America in 1954. It's a lot easier to leave America and attend school for a year in Denmark than it is to enter America for a year of school. When Jan decided to go, his father wrote a letter asking if he could attend school for a year and he received a reply saying he could and that was that. Marie, making the opposite request, had reams and reams of forms to fill out before she obtained her visa, which is good for one year. As far as is known, Marie is North Mason's second foreign student. Several years ago a Mexican student lived with the Superintendent of Schools and attended school in Belfair. Marie promised to drop into the Herald office in June before she leaves for home to give her impressions of life in Belfair. By then she hopes to be speaking English like a native.
