Today, I started my day visiting an English classroom. Nine years old Finnish schoolchildren were practicing adjectives. What is pieni in English? Who can write it? What is little? What is the opposite of little? Joy of learning.
5 PM, cycling home, I was still thinking about opposites. Not opposites of adjectives but substantives.
What is the opposite of snow? Is it water or sand.
What is the opposite of winter? Is it just summer, or is it a flower… plants growing towards the sun?
