For this 10th and last meeting, Bea and me decided to go to Turku. Two friends joined us, and we can consider that we spend the full day to this meeting!
We reviewed our course about the “directions”, the way to describe a map…etc., with the use of my GPS. To go to Turku, I put my GPS in French, and I asked to Bea to guide me, and to come back, I put it in Italian, and used it directly. Finally the vocabulary used by the GPS was quite easy, and the arrows on the map on the GPS screen helped us, in case of doubt!😉
We had lunch in Turku, and our desire was to eat Italian, or French food. Finally we went to an Italian restaurant. One of the waitresses was Italian, and Bea directly asked her to speak Italian. It was the first time, that I spoke Italian with someone else than Bea. Of course I’m not bilingual, (at least, not yet!.), but I have been happy to note that I was able to speak basically. However, I had to ask her to speak slower.., because she was speaking too fast for me. For one more time, I have been lucky to eat Italian food, and it was very good. I really like this type of food!
Then we had a walk and visited Turku, it was sunny day, and we spent a very good time there!
It was our last Each One Teach One meeting, and also one of my last day before leaving Tampere.
I’m a kind of sad, because of the end.., about everything!..but like Bea says, “don’t be sad because it’s almost the end, be happy because it happened!”. And she is right, I’m happy because it happened!
Each One Teach One was a great experience! Now, I have basic knowledges about Italian, but I also learnt many things about the Italian way of life! With Beatrice, we promised to each other to meet again; it will be time for me to visit Milan, for Bea to visit Paris!
I really hope Bea will be ready for her French exam!
Thank you Bea! 😊
