This Amazing Language❤️
It's been 10 days straight, I've never been so motivated to learn something. And I'm not stopping anytime soon because this language is amazing. It really is and being an Indian.. it's pronounciation is easy too. I feel so proud. ✨
It is the same with me, but, having been married to a Finnish wife since 1975, I have someone to ask when needed. That makes me say 5 steps forwards and 3 steps backwards... I started having reached 39 % in the test introducing the course. I feel that the language I have acquired is a bit different from the DL one but mostly positively so... I have found that I want to communicate the nuances that exist between my language and the DL one!
I just started, it sounds very funny to me, but I like it!
I wonder if we'll get a "Numbers" section too? Finnish numbers are extremely long. For example:
21 - kaksikymmentäyksi
69 - kuusikymmentäyhdeksän
99 - yhdeksänkymmentäyhdeksän
Good luck pronouncing it! :D
It's also extremely regular though, that's what I like about it. :) (French, German and Japanese are all a pain in the neck for that)
But yeah it can be a mouthful, which is probably why in puhekieli (spoken language) they're often shortened as much as possible, but then recognizing those forms become another challenge...
