9th meeting ; last meeting, feeling like Christmas is coming.

Finally, we had our last meeting.
Not everyone again with some reason, but more than last time.
We planned go to the Tallipiha!
Actually I visited here again, for buying some present and poster after this meeting.
Thanks for girls ūüôā
Our Finnish girls led us to there from Keskustori.
(I think we start christmas mood from there with christmas market.)
(I loved this words!)
Chocolate shop – Handmade craft shop – Another hand craft shop – Fancy(?) shop – Cafe
We moved like that.
And fortunately we watched a small concert in the cafe.
We enjoyed the mood and shared our impressions of the meeting.
Almost all of the members were feeling about leaving or Xmas.
Hugging each other was our last last last action of EOTO course.
Thank you all of my members!! Thanks for all the good memorizes! KakaoTalk_Photo_2015-12-25-10-42-25_94

It was special day.
Because Chrystal leave just next date.
We met in her place, there were other people who live with her.
Everyone was kind and Chrystal’s Malaysian soup was awesome.
We learned they speak in Mandarin Chinese language, enjoy the tea with rice meal!
We talked about how we felt finland at first.
There was some samething and also different thing.
( I love that tea! smelled similar with Korean tea:)
I felt some strange feeling with her leaving.
Hopefully, We will meet again one day.
Even in Korea or Malaysia.

7th meeting Tampere museum,Vapriikki

I lost two before meeting because of school schedule and unchecking message.

So, it’s actually, 9th meeting in our group, but 7th to me.

We met at the Vapriikki.

Before that, I heard about Vapriikki from other exchange students who visited there before.

As I head, It was various.

Especially, we enjoyed looking 2nd floor which have a theme about Finnish nature and industry.

We had a funny time like a kids!


On this day I can see and experience how much Finnish people love Ice hockey and their industry.

And also felt we are pretty friendly already!

I felt so happy because I didn’t see other members quite long time.

I miss you already

6th meeting – Dia de los muertos


We planned celebrate Mexican holiday for Dead people in Sofia’s place.

Dia de los muesrtos is the day of Death.

Normally they prepare some food for the dead relatives with your family.

It’s on 1st and 2nd of November.

Like our second meeting with Mexican independence day,

we could experience mexican holiday.

Each one bring some food and candles.


We did a game which is saying continually a word with last alphabet from last word.

And, We played it with only in Spanish or Finnish!

We could learn some words in Spanish and Finnish

like a squirrel called Orava in Finnish, Ardilla in Spanish.

It was such a sweet and productive night


The lasting meeting

we had our last meeting today. As before, I have learned lots of daily expressions in Finnish.  And I would say, my partner Rulis is really a good language teacher. until now, I have acquired lots of  Finnish phases which can be used in the daily communications.  The contents I have learned in this are as follows:

aamulla=in the morning

aamupäivällä=before noon

päivällä=in the midday

iltapäivällä=in the afternoon

illalla=in the evening

yöllä=in the night

punainen  = red



valkoinen  =white





These are all the contents I learned in this lesson. even though this is the last lesson for EOTO course, but my passion of learnig Finnish cannot be blocked, so in the following day, I will still try to grasp any kinds of opportunity to learn Finnish and Finnish culture. And I believe that I can speak Finnish pretty well in the future.



Tallipiha & The End

Our last meeting was both extremely fun and kinda bitter, since it was the last time I was seeing my group members. We went to Tallipiha christmas market, which was, once again, a new experience for me.

I really liked the small old buildings and all the handcrafted stuff they were selling there. My personal favourite had to be the tiny chocolate shop – it smelled incredible there. It was too bad that all of the shops weren’t open, because Tallipiha is a great example of finnish christmas traditions. I would recommend it to anyone, especially foreigners.

Later we went for a coffee. This time we didn’t really learn anything special language-wise but we talked about christmas and what we would do and what we normally do in our home countries. It was very nice, as usual, especially because there was a quartet playing Bach there. Cool!

This experience in general has been a good one to me. I did learn some basic spanish and was able to strenghten my english, but I think the most important thing was that I learned a lot about new cultures. I made new friends from all around the world, and couln’t be happier about that. I think I will definitely keep on learning spanish, this was a great kickstart for that. Thank you to everyone in our group for this experience! Adi√≥s! Buena suerte!

The ninth meeting

We continue our ninth meeting in the library of TAMK today. I have learned some usefully daily expressions in Finnish. the contens are as follows:

Tervetuloa Juhliin=welcome to party

Kenet sinä kutsut?=Whom will you invite?

Kutsun Hansin ja Barbaran. ¬†=I¬īll invite Hans and Barbara.

Kuka tekee ruokaa?    =Who will make food?

Onko sinulla jano?=Are you thirsty?

Onko sinulla kuuma?=Do you feel cold? Are you cold?

These are all the contents I learned this time. After that, we review some expressions given in last time. Now I am able to communicate with finnish people by using some simple words. Thanks a lot for my partner Rulis.



The eighth meeting : Finnish time

we have  the eighth meeting in the library of TAMK today. And I have learned some daily words and sentences about the time. the contents are as follows:

The seventh meeting

we continue our senventh meeting today, this time we came to the biggest library in the city center .This is the first time I have come there, and I would say it is a really big library. I have got ¬†a library card there. on that day we really talk a lot about different kinds books ¬†and my partner introduced a good book for me called twilight, which is a really famous novel all over the world. so I borrowed this book from the library. After that, we came to a CD shop, in which we chose the CDs of our favorite siners respectively, and then we appreciated those CDs together, and I would say we have a lot of fun by talking about ourfavorite singers. Then we left the library, and come to another CD shop to buy a CD for my partners’ friend

I am pretty happy that I have such a common hobby with my partner, so pthat I will have more topics when I communicate with my partner Rulis.

The fifth meeting

we continue our fifth meeting ¬†at my partner’s home. ¬†Actually, we didn’t ¬†perform our learning of Finnish words today, I just felt ¬†the Finnish food culture. ¬†My partner has prepared a salmon fish, which is cook quite a finnish way. And I wood say this is first time l have try the finnish fish, and it was pretty delicious.


It was a really enjous time, and we talk a lot at that time. I really appreciate that my partner Rulis hold such a amazing party for me. Thanks a lot!
