Our second meeting of Finnish-English group was held at Kumma bar & lounge with an intention to play some board games. There is a nice selection of different games on shelf to choose and after short discussion we chose Alias – a game where the objective of the players is to explain words to each other. Our version of the game was the original Finnish version, so we used Google Translator to translate words to English. Playing was actually very funny to be played in foreign language, and same time also very educational. It was a bit challenging to describe some word without saying out that actual word or part of it, especially when playing against clock and doing it fast.
We didn’t know it beforehand, but bartender told me that Kumma was part of NamuAppro. So after sitting there about an hour, lots of students started to walk in in overalls to eat small snacks, so I eat something also. Those overalls led our discussion to student life and social status in different countries. As an conclusion I would say this meeting was very fruitful.
