Me and Jaimile met at the weekend, we have both been very busy especially with Jaimile travelling, to make up for it we spent a lot of time together the other day!
We first met to go have a look at the market joining onto sokos! Then we went to meet Jaimiles friends from university, it was so nice to meet them and we all went for lunch at the pizza buffet where we got a chance to go over some of the foods available and more that we could think of. We spoke a lot about cultures which I’m very interested in! Jaimile told me about all the folklores Brazil had and I told the ones about Scotland! We also had a look at Jaimiles blog and had a read through that.
Then we went for frozen yoghurt which was very good! It was really nice talking to her friends and getting to hear about their life’s and what not.
Then we went to prisma so Jaimile could get a hat, we went through the days of the week and months on the way and at prisma had a good look around talking about things and objects! Really enjoyed this meeting 🙂
….with that sentence, Jaimile spoke out what I didn´t want to say at the beginning of our next meeting. I already met Jaimile and Erica one day after my last meeting with Laura and Eija, because they didn´t have time the other day. And this time we met at Prisma to learn groceries.
In advance to this meeting, we uploaded a list of groceries in finnish and german, so that we had a slight clue about how the words are written.
As Jaimile and me were very interested in different kind of meat, we went straight to the sausage and meat corner. Erica told us the difference between the different animals, porsaan (pork), sika (schwein), nanta (cow) and so on. Also very important was the word for vegetarian (kasvis), because last time I accidently bought a kasvismakkara (vegetarian sausage) and thought it was real meat.
Another important word for me to learn in the supermarket was the finnish word for celery, as I am allergic to it. And it is pretty much the same as in german (Sellerie – Selleri).
This lesson was very helpful for me, because I learned a lot about food stuff and now I know better what the cans, packages and so on contains, when I buy them (and I don´t have to rely on the picture that is on the package).
