On this session (14th October) we wandered together to the magnificent autumn colored Kauppi-forest. Theme was first to talk about the cultural/industrial meaning of forest in Finland and to get to know some Finnish basic words like;
- forest = metsä = las
- wood/tree = puu = drewno/drzewo
- spruce = kuusi = świerk
- pine = mänty = sosna
- wet = märkä = mokry
- autumn = syksy = jesień
I also terribly wanted to teach Krystian the meaning of ‘kuusi palaa’ but I’m afraid even I didn’t remember all the meanings!
I also don’t know if it is true in Finnish since I’m a native, but I have heard comments about this (see the picture below found from Pinterest) This is also certainly how it feels like to me when I’m trying to learn a new hard Polish word!!
