Today, 23 September, we have had our first group meeting. Our “Each One Teach One” group it’s composed by four Spanish (three girls and one boy) and two Belgium guys. The Belgium guys went to our building, which is placed just close to Hammekatu street. During this meeting, we have played “chained words” on the blackboard, putting one word in Spanish and the next one in Dutch. Every word we have written on the blackboard it’s been translated into English, so we can all understand them and have a three idioms meeting. We have tried to guess the meaning of each word before knowing the real meaning, turning the game more interesting.
On the other hand, we have set the other reunion dates in order to organize our schedules. We have chosen different possible places as having a barbeque at Ritakatu (Belgium guys home), going canoeing on a lake, going watch the northern lights on a lake too. Also, we have planned to meet at a coffee bar to play some table games. We also want to play volley and have a picnic at the beach which is placed at “Atlaspuisto”. Moreover, we want to play some scooters or some bikes and go to a nice place.
Finally, we have searched our own cities to know each other location. I add to this post some pictures of these places:
I also add some pictures from our “chained words” game:
It’s been a really interesting meeting in which we have known some cultural differences from Spain and Belgium. We are looking forward to the next meeting!
