Phrases used daily – Meeting #7 (Finnish – English)

In our # 7 Finnish – English meeting we talked in detail about regularly used phrases in daily life. I was already familiar with some phrases, as they were used again and again in certain contexts or in different communications, but I was only able to assign some after our common unity. The contents of this meeting were, for example: good morning (hyvää huomenta), good night (hyvää yötä), happy birthday (hyvää syntymäpäivää), thank you very much (Kiitos paljon), sorry (anteeksi), enjoy your meal hyvää ruokahalua), etc. We also discussed the phrases for interpersonal contact such as “I love you” (minä rakastan sinua/rakastan sinua) or “I like you” (tykkään sinusta) and I miss you ((minä) kaipaan sua).

We actually wanted to have our meeting in a cozy atmosphere, but sometimes everything turns out differently than you think and we used the waiting time in the garage for our unit. We will probably not forget experiences and units like this anytime soon. 😀

Best regards,

Christine

Somehow we decided this meeting began at 8.15 am. You know what happened next…

We were all there on time 😀

The learning theme today was direction in German and in Finnish.

The picture was downloaded from the Internet by Tabea. Then we trained to say directions based on that picture in English, German and Finnish and converted them into a table. Pronunciation was a tough task for all of us! At first, we did not expect this task to be that difficult. However, it turned out to be quite challenging. Well a great lesson here, high expectations will get you nowhere.

Then we ended up discussing some basic sayings/greetings in Finnish and German.
