Last Thursday we had our 9th meeting at Moro sky bar. It was my first time there. The tower was quite high and good. We ordered some drinks and overlooked a nice view. As usual, we studied Finnish and Korean. I think Finnish would easier than English for Koreans because Korean is grammatically more similar to Finnish than English.
After that, we talked a little bit like about differences between Finland and Korea such as teaching style in school, weather and so on. It was good.
We are going to meet at the pre-Christmas party in TAMK next time and That will be our 10th meeting and probably our last meeting. Time flies! See you guys there!
On Thursday we had our ninth meeting at Moro Sky Bar. The tower is quite high so the views are nice also. We hadn’t talked about preparing material to teach and just to be sure I prepared a little bit to teach, which went like it did previous times. We have our own style in studying and teaching that we all know, so it is easy to teach and learn in our group.
I don’t really remember many Korean words yet and my skills in writing Korean are a bit lacking too, but you can’t learn a new language in a short period of time (especially if you don’t have much time to review and go through what you have learned). All in all this is a good basis for me to continue learning Korean.
After studying a bit we talked about differences between Korea and Finland. We talked for example about the weather, how dark it is and how there is not much of snow like one could expect when coming to Finland. It was good to just relax and chat and enjoy each others company.
Next time will be our last time at the pre-Christmas party and I will try to think of something good to bring there. See you there!
Few days after, the second meeting took place in the more sky bar. In this amazing place, we try a popular game in Germany : “Rummikub”. I know that this game existed in France too but it’s not a game that young people play. The idea of this meeting was to have fun with a game that not everyone already knows but also learn some vocabulary.
During this meeting we learn principaly german words :
1 Eins Rouge Rot
2 Zwei Black Schwarz
3 Drei Blue Blau
4 Vier Yellow Gelb
I really liked this meeting because we focused on one culture so we can learn more. But we are, each member, in erasmus in a country that we didn’t know before so we discover new place together and drink coffee as a real Finnish !
I really like our meeting because everything is natural, I mean that we learn but not in a School way : boring where you just have to listen. No, we share together our culture and our feeling in a new country. And of course, we want to learn some vocabulary and compare the pronunciation etc.
