Gayeun, Laura, and I had the first meeting this Friday.
We met at Tampereen Vohvelikahvila which is a small café and stayed for about 2 hours there.
We taught our own languages to each other eating some coffee and waffles by using some handouts prepared for the meeting. Above all, the waffle and coffee were good.
we started off with basics such as the alphabet, numbers, and greetings or something. I was taught some words and expressions by Laura, but these aren’t familiar to me, so it wasn’t easy for me. Also, Laura probably felt difficult in learning Korean, because Korean has nothing in common with Finnish and English. We didn’t do many things at our first meeting, but it was a good start. I’ve never taught someone my mother tongue in English, so it was pretty awkward for me. I believe everything is going to get better over time.
I think we’d better talk about not only language but our cultures next time.
I’m looking forward to our next meeting.
