Learnia’s Get Togethers in the summer 2012

The idea in LGT is to speak Finnish with Finns. A Finnish person gives a short introduction on a certain subject (it can also be someone else), after which he/she helps people practice. The discussion continues around the subject, possibly changing to another subject towards the end.

This is not a serious event; rather, the idea is to learn how to use Finnish in social situations. During summer 2012, we will hold a few events such as these at different locations in Helsinki. The most up-to date information can always be found on our Facebook pages.

Learnia’s Get Together 1 (LGT1)

was held 18.6.2012 in the Pub called Public Corner (Mikonkatu). We talked with Janni about who are we and which things we like etc. Many people had got last minute obstacles for participating, so we were a tiny group. Anyway, the atmosphere was good. We learned things that you never think to wonder in the classroom.
