About This Class

2751d0d9

In this class you will learn how to speak spoken Finnish, the language that Finns use when communicating face-to-face. Finnish people do not use the standard language to talk and communicate with each other so it is essential that you will learn spoken Finnish skills to talk to Finns.

The course starts with a brief introduction to Finnish and I will share some useful tips & tricks that will help you understand the nature of Finnish when you learn and get deeper into it.

In this class I will teach you all the basics of spoken Finnish that you need to start speaking Finnish. You will learn stuff such as:

After the intro, you will learn stuff such as:

  • use the the person pronouns and the be-verb
  • useful one-liner phrases you can start use right away
  • use demonstratives (this, that)
  • adjectives
  • talk about your hobbies
  • counting, numbers and age 
  • and MORE

And it will be all in spoken Finnish.

This class is for everyone who wants to learn the basics of the Spoken Finnish. If you have taken Finnish classes already, but don’t know the spoken language very well yet, this is perfect for you.

This course is a very nice addition to my traditional course of Finnish. I have been learning kirjakieli so far, and didn't know much about the spoken variation. It is amazing how some basic information helps, at least at my level. I definitely recommend this course! :)
Great course! Nice to have a course about spoken finnish. I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to new modules :-). I would maybe need even more exercises to repeat and recap.
