Exam time! – Italian and German girls’diary pt.10

Here we are! After 3 months, this was our last meeting of “Each one teach one”. We met Monday 10th April in Mallashovi after dinner and after a beer we start our “ORAL EXAM”😱. We decided to do it in this way because write all the sentences in the correct way was too difficult also to remember, so we just check each other if we were able to remember how to pronunce the things that we learned during these 10 meetings. It was funny because my German pronunciation is not so good to hear and sometimes I made some mistakes but at the end I remembered more or less all the things that Anna thaugh us. We made questions about grammar, numbers, day and months, useful sentences, culture and uses  (also how to do pizza and all the typical festivities) and the thing that we better remembered was how to cook our typical dishes😅. Also Anna was very good because she learned very well what we thaugh her and I am very proud of her because Italian language is not so easy because of the grammar and all the exceptions, but she was able to learn a lot in so short time so I am very happy for her.

I will miss do our meetings because I really enjoyed them and everytime we did something different so it was also a good way to spend time having fun and learn new things. I will keep this experience in my mind forever because it was very useful and I am very happy to have met Anna. I hope to have been a good teacher for her because she has been with us, especially with me because Marta studied German in the highschool so she already knew something, but with me was harder because I have never studied it and I know that it hasn’t been easy. Thank you so much Anna and thank you for this wonderful experience!

Goodbye to everyone! Auf Wiedersehen!😘

EPISODE 7:  Language Battle – ROUND 3

The time had came, the day was here, the final exam, the doomsday,our last chance to show what we’ve learnt about our cities. When I arrived to Pablo’s room he was studying (bookworm…) but then I felt guilty and I started to study too. When we were ready we called two of our friends and the goal was to pretend to be locals using all what we’ve learnt during the sessions. Let’s say that maybe we’d needed a few more sessions but the global results were quite funny and good.

Pablo called one of my best friends, Sanchez, as a good researcher he asked everything I’ve told him in the other sessions. Maybe he was not researching… maybe he asked everything because he didn’t trust me… Anyways he tried to acquire the Madrilian attitude but it was really funny how he pretend to shout and pronounce.

They spent all the afternoon talking, and when they finished talking, it was night so when we called his friend Irene, she was… well let’s say that she was a bit tipsy. She started talking as fast as she can and laughing all the time, that was the funniest and nonsense conversation I’ve ever had. Pablo made his best to not try to laugh about all the things that I was saying and all the things that Irene tried to say, and he helped me with a few expressions. This was by far the funniest session.

I’ll finish with an interview to a Madrilian girl who was asked to try to speak catalan using the shortening algorithm.
