I met my partner 21.2019 in Cafe Europa. I learned the first five persian alphabet. We agreed that i should learn five alphabets per meeting. My partner wanted to go throught few of finnish alphabets (Y,U,Ö,E,O). Other alphabets where familiar to him already. I also wanted to learn the first ten numbers. My partner also showed me a youtube video, which is a persian childern song. They sing about persian alphabets. We where goin trought pronouns in persia and also in finnish. My partner thought me in finnish witch was great. We also we had a conversation in Finnish about activities we like to do during summer. Persian new year was on the corner so we also discussion about that. My home work is to listen the song of the alphabet song, learn pronouns and the firts ten numbers.

Pairing up in the school library

This was my firts meeting in EOTO course. In my group there is only one other student. We are the finnish/ persian pair. I want to learn the basics of persia and my pair wants to learn more finnish. In my first seasson we made list of what we should do and what is the deadline. We agreed to meet 15 times before 1.5.2019 because I will be leaving to Mikkeli to do my intership for the summer. That means that we should meet about two times per week.

We focused  bit more speaking finnish than persia this meeting. I wanted to know what my partner knew already so I dont teach him same things he already knows. We had a really good conversation going on.  He knew Finnish quite a bit already. Im not a fast language learner but i did learn one word from the first seasson witch is ”ketab”. It means book. I need to repeat the same words many times over and over again in my head so i will remember them permanently.
