This is a fantastic guide to learning the language. It gives useful phrases early on, but isn't just a phrasebook, as the reader is encouraged to think about what they're learning and picks up grammar on the way. For instance, on the section about introducing yourself and others, you learn how to say "may I introduce..." then are asked how to ask if you may do something - you have to work out which bit of the phrase is "may I" On one page I learnt, as part of a longer phrase, how to say "what", on another the word for "means". Then later is the question "how do you ask what something means?"
I've been able to work out short paragraphs a Finnish friend has written and I'm only on section 2! (I needed the little dictionary at the back for two words)
The speech is quite fast on the audio, but real Finnish is too. Better to learn how it sounds - and in-case you're struggling when speaking to a Finn, you do learn how to ask them to speak slowly! There's a phonetic guide in the front of the book. You need the audio as some sounds have no English equivalent.
As it teaches Finnish through useful phrases, you could just use it as a phrasebook, but with a little work you can get to know and understand the language.
