Finally our last exams are over and also this amazing course will come to an end very soon. It was an amazing opportunity to learn some German from my buddy Georg. He always tried hard to share his mother tongue with me. Sure my skills are not that good to have a conversation. But hey, I can order a beer in German (most important skill!), introduce myself, know the colours, numbers, some adjectives, and a bunch of German nouns with their article! I also learned how to shop and got to know the Austrian culture much better. I had the chance to participate in a typical Austrian dinner with Georg and some other Austrians. We always had great fun in our meetings. Each One Teach One is a perfect opportunity to get to know someone better, to learn about his culture and to improve one’s language skills. We also found some interesting spots for a nice chat or to chill out, like the coffee place just behind Lapinkaari.
In our meeting we decided that everyone of us has to prepare a little exam. So we can proof our skills and have to go through the stuff we have learned in this course.
This time our meeting took place in the library of TAMK. We went through my little note book with all the german words I have learned. We talked about when we met the first time. Georg had already forgotten it, even though it is a really funny story. (It’s all about girls, girls , girls hahahaha)
So see you next week. We will upload our final exams on the blog, which will also be our 10th and last blog entry.
Enjoy the rest of your time in Tampere! It was an amazing time and a pleasure to meet you all!
