Our first meeting

We had our first meeting through Teams. We started with some basic greetings, numbers, weekdays and explain Daria and Simon how different the Finnish language structure is, just so they get some sort of an idea about it. I had some papers I got from my former client who used to teach Finnish to immigrants, so we used those to assist us through the meeting.
Felt like the beginning was really hard for me and Elina, since Finnish language is not the most easiest language to learn, nor to teach! But I think we did okay, since Daria and Simon seemed to understand our explanations. We agreed that next time is Daria´s time to teach us some Russian. I think it will be very interesting.
