or "that river is near Oulu."
I had ''That river is near Oulu'' as well.
English is not my first language though, so there might be a slight difference in meaning of which I know nothing about.
Or perhaps "nearby Oulu" as well.
In English, "near" and "close to" are the same thing. "That river is near Oulu" is a correct response, and should be counted as such.
Near = close
Not even sure anyone is bothering with administering the Finnish Course on here anymore....
But yeah. Also NEAR!!!!
