Actually I missed some buses and it took so long to get the Fazer café which was our meeting place because sadly I lived a place having rare bus and it was on Sunday. (Moreover, I had burned my whole pot so I should solve that problem related to the ventilation of the kitchen:<) For those reasons, I went there late and missed quite many parts of it. Fazer café was crowded with many people and it had many food which smelled so nice. We had time to remind of what we had learned last time and talked about Lapland where Hyunsoo, Jieun and me went between these two lectures. And also about Paris as Jieun wanted to go to Paris in a few days. It was interesting to listen to it.
Last Wednesday we went to the Bilingual Pub Quiz in O’Connels Bar. It is in english and finnish, so very recommendable for language learning interested people and foreigners 🙂 Some other friends joined me and my eoto-partner Paula and her partner Krystian (polish) as well. It was a good group and we had a funny time together although the questions were quite difficult to answer.
There were two rounds à ten questions with topics like music, news, celebrities or general knowledge. We were a bit fighting at the question where we had to find out which island is searched by only knowing the shape of it – first we thought of Sumatra, then we wrote down “Borneo” and in the end it was Java!
Because of the questions I repeated the numbers in Finnish again which is always useful:
yksi, kaksi, kolme, neljä, viisi, kuusi, seitsemän, kahdeksan, yhdeksän, kymmenen…
Istun ystäväni vieressä – I sit next to my friend.
onni – luck / Onnea! – Good luck! (btw: onnibus is lucky bus ;))
And I repeated the time what I already learned in my finnish course in university:
Kello on tasan seitsemän – The time is seven o’clock./ Es ist sieben Uhr.
Se on puoli kahdeksan. – It is half past seven/ Es ist halb acht.
And I had finnish glögi again which is really my favorite winter drink here!
We had a meeting at Solu where my tutor Michel quizzed me about my upcoming German exam. I had some materials with me and we began. I was asked words in Finnish and I did my best to reply in German. After this we had a little chat about office materials and then he took us outside for a walk and explained construction vocabulary and told a little story in German about that. Happy to see I’m understanding more and more each time =)
p.s I remembered all those words in my quiz so thanks!
