Just completed the tree - Thank you so much team suomi!
I just finished the Finnish course a few hours ago and as a native Finnish speaker, I really enjoyed it. I started to think about my mother tongue in a weird and different way, and some of our day-to-day idioms started to look and sound very exotic and somewhat stupid.
The course is still flawed in many ways; many of my correct translations were marked as incorrect and some small details didn't make any sense. But it's still in beta and it will be improved along the way.
Thank you Team suomi and Duolingo for making this course possible; completing it really made my day.
For sure a sweet course, I have been waiting for this course to become a reality since back in 2015. It gives a you a really different way to practice then say Sun Suomi or any other finnish learning book. Nice for practicing vocabulary, listening comprehension, and translating skills.
My biggest complaint is just lack of translation options, a couple inccorect finnish to english translations, and of course the extremely common Hän = only he when no mention of a feminine word is present. It is a pretty important to explain to newcomers that Hän = He/She depending on context so hopefully they fix that soon.
Very cool otherwise
Nice job! :) Glad to hear it has a native's approval too! I'm on the last branch currently and also want to write a little review of the tree as well once I finish later on today, but you totally covered most concerns I had with the tree (such as given correct answers either completely unnatural in English, or actual correct answers getting marked incorrect)
