Last week we met at the best waffle-place that I have ever been to! I can´t remember the name, but it was near the Sokos Hotel by the river in Tampere.
So while eating our waffles (in finnish: vohveli) we first made some german grammar lessons… what was really difficult even for me, because it is so hard to explain, why you write some verbs like this and the other like that. It feels like, for most of the verbs we don´t have any general rules to conjugate them. As a native, you just KNOW it without knowing why.
After that, we tried to repeat the numbers from 1 to 10 in finnish. And I still have problems with them. But a good news was that the other numbers are very easy to learn, because they are always set together from the already known numbers. That was kind of surprising, because I thought that finnish language always takes the most complicated way. But I was wrong.
As we already sat in a café, we learned how to order something and how you order especially in singular and plural.
In the end, we messed around a little bit and learned some more or less unuseful things in finnish. Like saying that you are very cool. (“Mä oon niin siisti”). Maybe I can use that to impress someone one day in a funny way.
