Let´s get to know each other

Our first meeting was on September 10. We have a big group so it was a big challenge to set it up. We met at the Aussie Bar at Thursday evening. We ordered some drinks and we started by introducing ourselves. We played some game which helped us to remember everybody´s names. I think I now remember all.. 😉
We have in our group students from France, Germany, Russia and Finland. Everybody told something about their homeland and I learned some new things about every country. I can´t wait to learn more!
We also went to the Hemingsway bar for another drinks. There we discussed more about Finnish and Russian music and artists. We talked about Christmas, Joulupukki (Santa Claus), Independence Day, national dress and parties. I promised to show picture of me wearing our national dress. I have to remember take it with me some time 😀 It was nice to notice that it was quite easy to talk to foreign exchange students in English 🙂 I have to admit that beforehand I was little bit nervous about it. I also realized that it is easier to talk in English than understand when someone else is speaking it (I thought it would be the other way around). I am looking forward to the next meeting 🙂
