So me and Tom decided to head down to Koskikeskus shopping centre to learn some German and to perfect his English! Also because he was on the hunt for a hat (Hut in German!)
So we wandered around the shops discussing how expensive Finnish clothing shops are and naming objects in German and English. This lead to us having a giggle fit because Tom was thinking on German and English words which are the same- which lead to him pointing at a shop sign and saying is was a schild- shield in English.
After failing to find a suitable hat we decided to go to the ground floor where there’s a supermarket and go over food/ drink products in German. Here are some we found.
Bread – Brot
Milk – Milch
Beer – Bier
Butter – Butter
Chicken – Huhn
Pork – Schweinefleisch
Mushroom – Pilz
All in all it was a good lesson. Next time we’re going to talk more about common sayings and Tom is going to look up some websites to help. I’m realising how hard it is now to teach your own language. It’s difficult because something you just know and then trying to explain it is very frustrating and hard.
