A happy student here again
Rachel I am so pleased that it is you, who is tutoring me. When writing my first entry yesterday I was uncertain who the tutor was going to be and when noticing that it was my possum friend from down under I was delighted. I hope that by the time we depart at the end of November, we have grown to be possum bosom friends.
I also want to pass on my thanks to my student colleagues; I appreciated your warm welcome. I promise to tell a lot about Finland; about our culture, history, economics, weather, tradition, my family and of course about Santa Claus. I will try to have a different topic every day and my entries are going to be more interesting as from next Monday, as I said yesterday, I have been working very long hours and I still have many things to catch up with.
Rachel I do not mind you being short. I am a person, who tries to write with limited words. Reason for that is… I confess that I am rather impatient person; long windiness is not my favourite as I am so fast with my moves. The reason for above is that I always have so much to do.
I will try to correct my errors:
1. I do my best to keep you interested = I will do my best….
2. I’ve been watching American Idol on / in TV = this one I always find very tricky, but I guess it should be on TV (my intuition tells me that), and yet the picture is “inside.”
Rachel I do know Waltzing Matilda, when I lived in New Zealand I had a pleasure to hear it a lot. I would like to hear the story behind it. Pavlova I also like and I do adore the sound of didgeridoo.
As the weekend is coming, I would like to share the following with you.
“The true wealth of a nation lies not in it`s gold or silver but in it´s learning, wisdom, and in the uprightness of it´s sons”. Kahil Gibran.
Rachel thank you for picking up my mistakes, I trust you continue to do so. During the weekend I am going to put my best foot forward. Feet remind me of the promised account of Chris’s best shoes …
