Yesterday we had our first meeting in quite a long time. Due to the current situation this was held online also because Tessa and me decided to fly home to Germany.
We have been talking a lot about the virus, how it affects our school life and our private life. We told Ninni how significantly our lives had changed once we arrived in Germany. We are not allowed to see our friends, distant relatives or grandparents. Although the situation is bit more relaxed in Finland as Ninni told us also she is not supposed to go out that much anymore. We all agreed that not being in school nor meeting your friends face to face is quite hard and difficult to deal with. But we are also glad we have the possibility to still see us through FaceTime and exchange our thoughts and feelings. It’s nice to know you’re not alone!
It is quite difficult to practice and get used to a new language through online teaching or online meetings. Nevertheless we figured that our online finish and German classes work well and we just have to get used to those changes. We taught Ninni many different ways to say “I don‘t know“ in German. So in her next Zoom German class she can impress her teacher with some good answers even if she doesn’t know what’s going on 😉
We talked that maybe in the next meeting we can play Alias or some other games to learn some other words and also to just talk about the situation because that’s the main thing on our all minds right now.
