Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nico: Another word to show you really like something is, of course, to say you love it. For example, if you love chocolate, you can say rakastan suklaata! When you're in Finland, remember to try the infamous salmiakki! This is a very salty candy, basically licorice flavored with ammonium chloride. You’ll either love it, or hate it, there is no in between!

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Nico: Hei hei!

Hei Leena,


Kiitos kommentistasi! Minäkin rakastan salmiakkia ja pidän salmiakista paljon! 😄

Kaikki eivät siitä pidä koska se on voimakkaan makuinen. (strong taste).


Let us know if you have any question.

Cheers,

Aarni
