Last meeting, Kalevala book.

Everything has beginning and the end. Well, our meetings come to the end.
That 12 meeting was a really nice summary of all. We spend time together with reach discussions about whole our course Each One Teach One. That time also Leila teach me some finish phrases and words, but not only she also present finish literature.
What is interesting that closer to the end we start to understand each other better our vocabulary come more reach. We improve our cultural knowledge now it’s wide, a new view for studying, world and life.
During that meeting, we were more talking about languages. How many languages exist in Finland. Some of them are not using anymore. Language in Finland: Suomi(Finnish), Swedish like official one, but North part use Sami.
There are also several official minority languages: three variants of Sami, Romani, Finnish Sign Language, and Karelian.
We reach together from where come finish language and Leila present me a very important book for finish culture and finish people. Finish bible “Kalevala”  The Kalevala or The Kalewala is a 19th-century work of epic poetry compiled by Elias Lonnorot  from Karelian   and Finish oral folklore  and mythology.

51CXP4J8KNLIt is regarded as the national epic of Karelia and Finland and is one of the most significant works of Finish litterature. The Kalevala played an instrumental role in the development of the Finish national identity, the intensification of Finlnds  language strife and the growing sense of nationality that ultimately led to Finlands independence from Russia  in 1917.
For me, it was the first time to try this type of course and write a blog. I was a scared; but finally it better and easy, than I was suspect. That was a great time.
Thank You so much for everyone who was reading my posts, who help me during my studying; thanks TAMK for this amazing possibilities to study in Tampere and try new studying system.
Best Regards

I hope one day to back again to Tampere, during summer time.

Course assessment

I’m glad that I was part of Each One Teach One. It was interesting and funny way to learn language. I had good group of great people. Even if my expectations about improving my skills in German language in the beginning were higher I’m greatly satisfied with this course. Sometimes it was difficult to find dates when everybody have a time. Especially at the end of semester when people have final exams and last trips. When I was writing preliminary plan I wanted to learn a lot. But then I found out that I simple had not enough time. It was caused by other interesting courses like Transportation management, Operations management, International Business and also by many trips like Stockholm, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Lapland, Helsinki, Turku and many others. And it was worth it! So now it’s time for having rest in travelling and starting to learn German more seriously.
