    Finland

    Although I doubt anybody is interested, I can teach Finnish. I should hope I'm capable enogh, as it is my mother tongue...

    A basic note: Finnish has 29 alphabets, the 3 "extra" ones being å (like 'o' in 'horse'), ä (like 'a' in 'slap'), and ö (like... er... I canät remember any word in English with anything sounding like it). There's also the 'äng', which doesn't have its own alphabet but is instead written as 'ng' (or, alternatively, 'nk').


    Thank You - Kiitos
    You're Welcome - Ole hyvä
    Good Morning - Hyvää huomenta
    Good Night - Hyvää yötä

    How are you? - Kuinka voit?/Miten voit?
    I'm good ( or ) I'm feeling bad - Voin hyvin (or) Voin huonosti
    I'm happy to hear that - Mukava kuulla
    What are you doing? - Mitä sinä teet?
    Have fun! - Pidä hauskaa!

    päivä!

    Finnish grammar has to be one of the most difficult I've seen anywhere in the world. Having said that, I really love it. The written language is quite different than the spoken one; with the former being shorter and harder to understand.

    Re: Finnish Thread

    Well, finnish is really hard to learn, probably because the word changes everytime the person changes. My house: taloni, your house: talosi, his/her house: talonsa...... i've read that word "talo" has 1000 different forms. Then, there is also words like "juoksentelisinkohan?" which means: "I wonder if I should run around aimlessly?" or "juoksisinkohan?" is almost the same but it means: "I wonder if I should run?" But thats the written language, I wouldn't say "juoksentelisinkohan" I would say "Mitä jos mä juoksisin ympäriinsä?".

    Katos katos, en tiennytkään että meitä on täällä muitakin ^^

    There are also some weird quirks in finnish like for example In/At Tampere (a city) is Tampereella but in/at Helsinki (capital) is Helsingissä. :lla is a suffix that could be translated as 'at' but : ssä is more like 'in'. Still the meaning with the two words is the same.

    Re: Finland

    It sounds a bit like French, I also have big difficulties with the writing. Also it's not the grammar which is difficult, there is no declination but the tense. Also there are a lot of irregular verbs and even the regular ones have irregularities.
    But Finnish looks like it's the level above. I think, I have heard it's not an indo european language. Do we know where it comes from ?

    Re: Finland

    It is a branch of uralic language family. So as the name suggest, it is speculated to originate from somewhere around the Ural mountains in Russia. But not to be confused with russian at all, which has completly different origins and grammatical structure.

    I think... quite a while from when we had that stuff in school.
