It have been a while we did not meet each other. As we are busy with university works and different activities. Evgeniia, Martina and me visited a finnish cafe in the city center. It was really cozy and relaxing place.The cake was so tasty. Meanwhile, enjoying a piece of Finnish pastry and a good cup of coffee, we were discussing about the culture shock we have in Finland and How the culture different than where we are from.
Even Finland and Austria are belonging to Western Europe, the norms and belief are so different. For example, Austrian are more care about title of a person; Finnish are more on the side of equality. It is interesting to see different norms in different society.
It’s the different, make our world a better place.
I am looking forward for the next meeting. 🙂
We are a group of three girls : Jihee, Yra and Daria. Languages we learn and teach are (South, of course) Korean and Russian.
For the first meeting, we decided not to create anything outstanding and we had lesson at tamk library. This session was for Russian. Since it was an introduction lesson girls were styding the alphabet. I was reading aloud and they were repeating. After they become quite fluent in letters and sounds, girls wrote their names using russian letters. In the end we just went throug basic words :
Hi- привет (privet)
We will focus on alphabet and pronunciation on future meetings.
I like the way how my girls are interested in learning Russian. This is my biggest motivation to prepare materials and to search for ideas of teaching.
and here we are on the picture. I have no clue why but our faces are shining
