1st meeting: Finnish – German

Sofia and me had our first meeting in Café Puisto in Tampere yesterday evening. Luckily we are both in Finland, so we were able to meet in real life. It was really nice to meet her and we had a lot of fun together!
First we talked in english to get to know each other. We had many topics to talk about, for example our studies, especially starting to study in this “corona time”.

Then we talked about some basic topics like introducing ourselves, talking about family, animals and countries in german and finnish.
I already know the basics of finnish, so my goal is to speak finnish a bit more fluently and it definitely helped to talk to Sofia.
I feel quite confident when speaking finnish with Sofia, because she understands me well and speaks really clear and understandable! 🙂
It has been a while since Sofia last studied german, so it was a bit hard for her to remember some words. Nevertheless she still managed well, for example in describing her family in german!

We both figured out that it’s quite hard/almost impossible to remember new words without seeing them written down, so next time we will write down new vocabularies for sure!
