Fifth meeting _hotpot

Date: 14.12.2019

time: 12:00-15:00

Address: siping’s home


Because we have already tried Monika ’s hometown traditional food,  so this time we chose Chinese traditional food -hotpot.

Monika couldn’t eat so spicy food,  so this time we ate the hotpot not so spicy. Inside including beef, goat meat,  vegetables and so on, for Chinese it’s delicious food,  also for Monika it’s good. We were very happy that Monika like to eat hotpot. And we talked about Chinese and Bulgarian cuisine.

Forth meeting- espresso +shoes store +secondhand shop+Christmas market

date: 30.11

time: 11:00-13:00      Two hours

place: espresso +shoes store +secondhand shop+Christmas market

This time we chose the coffee store-espresso (inside the stockman). We drink the coffee and we have a small talk with each other, about our exam, about our class and so on.  And during our tropic was goods prices in Finland, we thought Finnish goods prices were a little higher than our country, when talking about shoes Monika said she know somewhere the shoes were not expensive, so we went to the shoes shop next step.

Also the shoe shop are cheaper especially during “Black Friday”.  In there Siping have bought a shoe, I also want to buy but they don’t have my size. But I am so lucky for I know this place from Monika. Also Christmas market so busy and some food have good smell.

A good day!




Third meeting-Monika’s home

Date: 15.11

time: 13:30-15:30              2 hours

Place: Monika’s home

Today we plan to try Monika hometown transitional food, I will put the picture in this blog, because it’s very good food. However, my picture is not show the good taste for you, I promise it’s a delicious food.

I also take the picture for tree( not a real tree) near the table, Monika said it’s designed by her roommate, because her roommate have been stayed in China so the tree have enough Chinese style and Chinese words-春.

We have talked different high school education between China and Bulgaria. When Monika hear that our class begin at 7 am and finished at 10pm ( really true, because my province schools class time start at 5:30, different provinces have different time). They start at 10 am (I am remember not so clear) and finished at about 1pm. Chinese high school give high pressure to students, but European students are more free in their daily live, I love that.

Also we ate bread ( Monika cooked) and drink the flowers  tea ( Monika took it from Bulgaria), it tasted perfect. So perfect experience.I also thanks for treatment from Monika.

The first meeting in school library

Participants: Guorong Cai, Siping Zheng, Monika 

Aim: Guorong and Siping learn Bulgarian from 1 to 5 and some phonetic symbol and Monika Chinese from 1 to 5, hello, thank you and some tones.

Time: 19:00-20:00, one hour 

This is our first meeting to know each other, Monika come from Bulgaria and I and Siping come from China. Because Siping is my classmate so we are familiar with each other, Monika is our new friend, she is very pretty and friendly.

In this meeting, we teach Monika how to write and speak Chinese, such as hello, thank you , from 1 to 5. Monika teaches us how to write and speak Bulgarian, just from 1 to 5 and some phonetic symbol.

I remember that firstly we teach Monika what is the Chinese Pinyin, but we know if Monika learn Chinese Pinyin and it will spend lots of time, maybe all the each one teach one time. So after we discussed with each other, we give up this plan and make a new plan.

Although I am a Chinese but I also not good at tones and Pinyin, so we just teach Monika some words using in our daily live.


This picture is our notes that we learned in this meeting.





This one is my notes and I am very glad that

I can learn Bulgarian it’s so amazing.
