Today, TT and I got together at the Ravintola Puisto for our 2nd meeting.
We mainly focused on useful phrases today, ranging from sentences you need to introduce yourself (f.ex. Minä olen 21 vuotta vanha.) to phrases you need around the different holidays like “Hyvää syntymäpäivää!” or “Hyvää pääsiäistä!”. We also focused on the right pronunciation of these sentences, which was a bit of a challenge but in the end we both did pretty good.
We also came up with some plans for future meetings. We want to cook traditional Finnish food including reindeer meat and I am still trying to come up with some typical German dish we could enjoy together. Also, we are planning to go to a Finnish party together and I already learned today how to order a beer without letting everyone know that I am not Finnish: “Yksi olut, kiitos.”
