"What kind of table does he have?" is a more accurate translation, in my opinion.

It is.

"What is his table like?" would be "Millainen hänen pöytänsä on?"/"Millainen on hänen pöytänsä?".

If you're struggling to remember the word for table ("pöytä"), remember that it is very similar to the English word "poker"... "I played at the poker pöytä last night with my buddies"

How is pöytä similar to poker, man?

This is not the real translation from Finnish into English! Please, change it!

    The correct answer isn't really how this is said.

    Should it be: "What kind of table does he have?" (I'm new to Finnish!)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pieni_chilipalko

    Yes, that's correct as well, and in fact the more literal translation of the two.
