Today was our fifth meeting with Roosa and Davide. We saw each other in Cafe Europa and first we just talked about our holiday and more about ourselves in general (just a little bit more each time we see.) But the actual plan for today was to learn numbers and months, but it turned out that learning numbers was enough for this time. xD
I felt really good about this meeting because I actually started to learn and remember the numbers. Now I just need to use them or I will forget all of them by next time we see. It’s been beneficial that I already know a bit of Spanish. Because Italian is not that far away from it. Especially the numbers were almost the same… But still different of course.
Davide taught us a bunch of Italian hand gestures and different occasions when you can/should use them. I think now we are really getting into the Italian language.
I noticed that it was a bit hard first for Davide to learn numbers from 0 to 10, but after he learned those and the “tenth numbers”( twenty, thirty, etc..). He even knew how to say 133 or 256 in finnish, just like that (after a while of practicing).
1= Uno=yksi 2= Due= kaksi 3=Tre=kolme 4=Quattro=neljä 5= Cinque=viisi 6=Sei=kuusi 7=Sette=seitsemän 8=Otto=kahdeksan 9=Nove=yhdeksän 10=Dieci=kymmenen …undici,dodici,tredici,quattrodici….Cento x)
