Tal R

In my struggles with Danish language recently I didn‘t write any posts, but today is the day! I really missed writing for my blog.

Yesterday I had great and interesting day in Aarhus and I am looking forward to share the story with you, my dear readers.

My day started at Hasle culture house. In the area there live a lot of pensioners and people with small incomes, so at library they opened culture house. They have different initiatives, like creative shop, where one can bring their hand – made and sell it (there are pieces from Somalia, Romania, most are from Denmark). Since I like hand made, visiting this shop gives me inspiration (one woman does painting on stones, another makes braceletes from tooth brushes). Also at the culture house they have lessons for pregnant women, glass making, bord tennis and cafe with lunches and cakes (run by volunteers, so the prices are very small).

The event I attended was creative meetings, mostly pensioners come there, so for me it was great opportunity to practise my Danish. I really like pensioners here in Denmark, they have very social life and lots of hobbies. One can argue that they have good pensions so they can afford it. Well, it can be true, but also I think it is in the culture. People here do a lot of volunteer works, and no matter how ill they can be in an old age, they go to different social events.

Meeting with film production assistant

1b53b98I think most of you went to some language classes. While my living in Denmark I decided to attend language school. My group is a very nice, but we have evening classes and all of the students have jobs, so we don’t have enough time to socialise and get each other better. About my classmates I know some basic information where they work, names, countries they came from. But we communicate on the breaks or while doing some language exercices, but anyway is not enough to really get know a person.

During one of such exercises I was sitting near one girl, who wanted to change groups to study Danish a bit faster. We talk a bit, and then she told me she got an internship in a film company.

This event was organized by Aarhus Short film Challenge festival that takes place now in Aarhus. Troels also presented his video ”Beast” that won a lot of international film awards.

I hope this post will be interesting for film- lovers.

So here are some notes from Troels’ presentation.
