We (Alessandra and Yooree) met in front of the railway station and then made our way to cafe. Alessandra and Yooree are aready acauainted each other because Alessandra is a tutor of Yooree, but to me, it was the first time to meet Alessandra! I was very excited to get to know another Finnish person!
Because it was our first meeting, we just have a greeting and conversation about our purpose of this course meeting. Alesandra wants to study Korean grammar and idioms more, and Yooree and I want to study Finnish words and idioms. Alesandra knows many Korean words already, so I was very surprised. While talking together we had coffees and breads too.
During our conversation, suddenly our topic turned to “depression” and ” lonely”. First, I and Yooree taught Alessandra about the expression ” take the autunm” which means feel lonely especially in autunm. And then, Alessandra taught to us some Finnish words : kyynel = tear, syys masennus = autumn depression, masentaa = feel depressed, yksinäinen = lonely ( 1 person), ” He ovat yksinäisiä = they are lonely”
We talked about thesedays weather so we learned these words too. kylmä = cold, “Minulla on kylmä = I’m cold”, kuuma = hot, lämmin = warm, talvi = winter, tylinen/tulista = spicy, “Tosi tulista! = very spicy”, makea = sweet, suloinen = adorable.
We had a light chat because it was a just our first time. We will meet on every Wednesdays at 3:30 after finishing our class, if there is no another each one’s private plan. Our today’s chat was very interesting and useful so I expect the our next week meeting! And I ‘m happy now being much closer with Alessandra, after our meeting.
