My thanks to those who are developing this beta Finnish program. I am so happy to have it available. My late father was from Jyvaskyla, and I feel like he would love that I am practicing my Finnish! Kiitos! Kippis!
Thank you for creating this fun, enjoyable course, and the Tips lessons are so helpful. Your sentences featuring sauna, pulla, kahvi, kiltti koira and of course, Sisu all bring to life the Finnish experience as well as the language. Well done! I haven't finished the course yet but hoping there will be lettuja, jäätelö, mansikoita or cloudberries/lingonberries... ;)
I actually managed to hold somewhat of a conversation in Finnish the other day. I've lived here for a bit over 2 years but learning the language has always been something I've put off since Finns usually have a good grasp on English. After being restricted to grocery store Finnish for years it's really nice to be able to actually respond with more than the usual "Anteeksi, mä en puhu suomea." So yeah, to all the folks involved in making this happen, thanks a lot!
Hey RJJ, awesome you started learning Finnish language, it is a beautiful language. I am sure your father would be proud of you, because Finnish is a pretty difficult language to just start learning. And it is so weird that most of the Finnish community learn English very fast. (In here, Finland, English is a very popular language) But thank you for your time, I support your learning! Kiitos paljon, ystävä! = Thank you friend!
