01. GREETING

We met for the first time since we made our orientation in the cafe a week ago. I was full of expectation. 

For us who liked Chinese food in Korea, Ulla recommended Chinese restaurant. We ate delicious food.

I saw that there was a Chinese restaurant in Finland and thought that I wanted to have a Korean restaurant.We learned basic greetings on the first day.

The English alphabet and the Korean alphabet are different. I had to explain it from the beginning.

Hangul has its pronunciation, so you can read anything you learn. You can say without knowing the meaning. So it was hard to explain the shape of Hangul at first.

Hangul is logical word.Most English speakers think Korean has thousands of characters, like Chinese, but it actually has a very simple and logical alphabet, which you can learn in a few minutes. The alphabet was invented in 1443 during the reign of the Great King Sejong. There are 14 basic consonants and 10 basic vowels. Letters that have similar sounds also have similar shapes, so it is easy to learn.

It was hard to learn three languages ​​at the same time. After this class, I can now say goodbye to the bus driver. I am very happy when driver answer. Last time I was standing at the bus stop, someone grandmother spoke to me. She kept speaking in Finnish and could not understand any of them. However, I am confident since today. I hope to learn more and share many stories in Finnish.
