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.
I post about my sixth meeting. On November 12, we chose Mari’s apartment as the meeting place. It was near from my apartment to Mari’s apartment, but it was very cold on that day so I felt serious hard. Today, I learned Finnish all time.
This photograph is when Mali and Joonas wrote a notebook eagerly to teach Finnish clearly.
Firstly, I learned about a direction. It is to be useful when I ask someone a course.I widely learned about a direction from basic words like “Right = oikea” or “Left = vasen” to “To the right = oikealle” or “To the left = vasemmalle” and so on.
“Walk ahead and then turn left = Kävele eteenpäin ja sitten käänny vasemmalle”
“Walk ahead 100m and then turn left = Kävele sata metriäeteenpäin ja sitten käänny vasemmalle”
And also I learned the sentence that put them together!
Secondly, I learned the word of part of body.
Because it is useful for me if I know and be abele to say these words, for example, when suddenly I have a headache or stomachache and so on. Today, I learned many words, so I’d like not to forget them!
