Finnish is difficult to learn. But even a word or two a day makes for some good progress. I will add words and phrases to this blog as I come across them. Many will be common words you will stumble across on signs, in stores, in the newspaper, or as you walk across a Finnish city.

I am an American-born student of Finnish with a strong background in English grammar who now lives in Helsinki. This blog is part of my way to learn Finnish, by understanding words well enough that I am able to explain them to other people.  The blog is followed by many native Finnish speakers and even some teachers of Finnish, and I encourage those experts to make comments, additions and corrections along the way.

  1. This is a great site. I love the photos from actual signs, packaging, whatnot – and the linguistic side notes. Very thoughtful, and much appreciated. Thanks for doing this for us non-Finnish-speaking Finnophiles!

  3. Excellent and much needed help!

It’s easy since only one word has to be changed:
