Our first meeting was conducted in Solu, the building of the student union in TAMK. Students’ favourite place to chill!
As we both mentioned in the preliminary plan, we wanted to start things off with how to greet each other in Spain and Denmark. The way we did it was we first put everything in English and then translated it into our respective languages. Pronunciation in Danish is quite challenging, but I already knew that. On the other hand, Nicolai pronounces Spanish quite well :).
Spanish (Español) English (Inglés/Engelsk) Danish (Dansk)
Hola Hello Hej
Buenos dias Good day Goddag
Buenos dias Good morning Godmorgen
Buenas tardes Good afternoon God eftermiddag
Buenas tardes Good evening God aften
¿Quieres comer? Do you want to eat? Er du sulten?
¿Hola, como estas? Hey, how are you? Hey, hvordan har du det?
¿Que tal? How is it going? Hvordan går det?
Adios Good bye Farvel
Hasta pronto See you soon Vi ses snart
Nicolai mentioned that meeting and greeting in Denmark is actually quite similar to Spain. I thought that it would have been just a hand shake between both sexes all the time. Funny to learn how most of the greetings in Danish derive from English, so it was quite easy for me to understand them.
