Suomalainen ilta/ A finnish night!

This week we had our third meeting, which was hosted by us, the finnish girls. We all prepared some food for the evening, including meatballs, mashed potateos and karelian pastries. We also served them some Salmari (an alcoholic beverage that tastes like salmiakki) – almost everyone seemed to actually like it, which was surprising! As we were eating and having a good time, we also learned some basic finnish phrases like “Hyvää ruokahalua” or “Kippis” (or as Ani would say, “Hölkyn kölkyn”).

Then it was time for some teaching and learning! Paola and Sofia had made us these awesome kind of summaries of spanish pronunciation! So for the rest of the evening we just learned how to pronounce things, learned new words and teached them some new finnish words. As always we also compared and talked about cultural stuff a lot, which is always nice.

The thing that I like the most about our each one teach one- meetings is, that the teaching or learning does not feel dull or boring, it just feels like hanging with a bunch of friends!
