The 5th annual ‘Speak Dating’ event in celebration of the EU Day of Languages was held on 26 September 2018 at the Hong Kong Festival Walk shopping mall. The event was an opportunity for locals to get to know the languages and cultures of EU member states – and win prizes after some successful speak dating.
Finland was represented, and the queue to their table was long throughout the event. There was a lot of interest for Finland and our language, and visitors got to try rolling their R’s with words such as “ruska”, “ruisleipä” and “Räikkönen”.
