We met in grocery store Lidl with Qian before Christmas. Qian wanted to know more what things are really sold in Lidl and what all the Finnish names of things and food means. It was really fun and useful for me also to brush up the names of groceries in English. I noticed that we have some words in Finnish that we can’t even translate into English, such as “terttutomaatti” and “kirsikkatomaatti”. So here is now the words we learned at Lidl.
Beef-Pihvi Chicken-Kana Cow Mince- Naudan jauheliha
Tomate-Tomaatti Little tomatoes-kirsikkatomaatti
Many tomatoes together-Terttutomaatti Cucumber-Kurkku
Shampoo-Shampoo Hair Conditioner-Hiusten hoitoaine
At the store we went through these words together so that I said the Finnish word first and then Qian repeated it couple times after me. She pronounced them very well, I think! 🙂
This was different but funny way to teach Finnish!
