As a place to meet during our first meeting, we choosed little bakery near the place where Yuki and Iris live. The main topic of our meeting was creating origami – important part
of japanese culture.. Yuki has brought origami paper and some examples, then she showed us how to create tsuru, famous origami bird, and some other shapes. That has brought some memories of my childhood, when I was creating origami as a birthday presents to my parents. So my personal homework is to remember how to create one origami shape, I used to know long ago…(already done! B-) )
During our creative time we were also talking about connected vocabulary, I learned
new finnish and japanese words, as well as some differences between hiragana and kanji.
Because I am also a teacher, I answered some questions girls had. We talked about
how different melody and word order can change meaning of slovak sentences. Afterwards Iris told us about similar issue in finnish language, where word order can slightly change meaning too.
