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. 😀
