Miss me already?

Good news is … I am back 🙂

This time our group decided to meet again at Tuuli’s apartment. We studied lots of new words in both German and Finnish. I would like to share with you guys some few things that we had done so far.

1, Learning new words: Learning theme was food and clothes.

2, Culture exchange:

I have to say that I was quite amazed at how things working here in Europe. We discussed the Finnish schooling system, different types of high schools in Tampere and very interesting topic: kindergarten fee. It surprised me since I thought that it was very expensive to pay for kids in kindergarten here in Finland, however, it turned out that it would depend on parental income. We actually googled that and found out that the fee was actually not that high! German kindergarten also shared quite same system. I assume that it is standard system in Europe?

Siinä kaikki! This is all we did for the second gathering!

Frutas y verduras (fruit & vegetables)

A lesson in Lidl ? Why not ? Let’s study fruit and vegetables. Both of us love eating them and they seem to be indispensable in Mexican cuisine. While learning their names and choosing the most common ones, we did grocery shopping 🙂 There is no doubt, after this unusual class, I learnt the names of popular fruit and vegetables. Sheli taught me also their shapes and colours. We were also talking about the way they are served in Mexico and popular dishes which are rich in vegetables. I have never before studied vocabulary in a supermarket. This method seems to be practical, because you may choose which words you want to absorb. You select them according to your preferences. Thanks to Sheli, I learnt the names of the fruit and vegetables that I like and buy a lot. I created the list of those words which I want to memorise. It is easier to revise.
