Hi Patrick, looking good.

Minor point - I did find it a little confusing that you've used 
lower-case intial letters for the class names in the code, although in 
the text they do follow the (unofficial) convetion of being upper-case 
(properties starting lower-case).

Uldis Bojars (CaptSolo) has also put together a schema for CVs. I've not 
checked, but I bet there are some equivalences you can map across. You 
might want to find a Latvian-German dictionary too ;-)
