Language-addicts, how are you? 😀 I hope you survived your autumn break and are ready for the 2nd period! 😉
Sorry for the delay of this entry for above mentioned reasons ghehe ;D
Our second EOTO meeting was in the week before the break, I wanted do something practical and useful, so I took my students Maija and Kaisa to Sokos (always go somewhere inside now. always. so cold outside, brrr!) for practicing shopping phrases and some vocabulary for the things you can buy there.
For that I prepared a sheet with phrases to use, vocabulary and colours, you can find it here in case you’re interested:
We walked trhough the floors and talked about trying clothes on and I learned that “Sovitus” is the Finnish word for the changing room 😀 Now I can find it in every store hehe. It’s so funny that I also learn about Finnish things even though we’re supposed to be a one-way-learning group 🙂
On our way to the top floor we were talking about various products from clothes to shoes and finally we talked about lamps and decoration materials. While walking around they could ask me more questions about phrases and words which were not on the sheet.
They are pretty good in German already but need to get used to actually using some grammar and vocabulary! 🙂 I think that’s important in every language! 8D Let’s keep talking and talking, it’s the best way to practice!
I am looking forward to next time, I think it’s going pretty well already and I even learn a little bit Finnish thanks to Kaisa and Maija, it’s so fun! ♥
See you again!
