6th – The Time

23rd of April at a café

On this day we went over several useful words to signify times of day, as well as how the phrase construction in Finnish works when telling the time on a clock. Since I already knew numbers quite well, what was stranger for me were the months due to how peculiar they are. I couldn’t help but find their termination really funny, because “kuu” sounds really similar to the Portuguese word “cu” which translates to butt. On Messenger I talked with a friend of mine from Portugal which was here last semester and she commented on how when she learned the months she and a Brazilian colleague also found it hilarious.

In turn I also explained how time and months were in Portuguese as well as add numbers into the mix, though as before it is hard to find ways to effectively explain how pronunciation of each word works.
