Our first meeting was on 10th of October. We met in the Library of the TAMK.
We had a nice chat about our educational backgrounds like what we are studying in Tampere or what we already know about the others language from school or family. We also talked about our home countries, hobbies and stuff. So, we had nice small talk in the beginning to get to know each other better.
The meeting turned then more into a Russian lesson as Alina taught me the Cyrillic alphabet. I learned the names and pronunciation of the letters and practiced how to write them. While that we talked a lot about Russia and Germany and I was able to help Alina with her pronunciation of some words because she already knew some vocabulary from school.
