5.0 out of 5 stars The PERFECT companion while learning Finnish WOW! 12 Oct 2010
By H. Thompson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't expect for this book to be as amazing as it is. I have studied Finnish as a second language for a couple years now living in a very, very, small town where the Finns came to mine grandparents came from there and so being Finnish I've dreamed of going there and being able to speak properly. Even with proper classes and many books I have bought this one stands out the most. It has everything including a background of Finland and also the precise ways of adding the beginnings and endings which are VERY MANY for one word (the word Divine .. as "he is divine") has about 20 different ways to use it and when you become frustrated there is ALWAYS an incredible way they have of making it easier to understand. I can't say enough about it. You woin't be disappointed and as a longer book instead of making it very wide - it fits quite perfectly anywhere I place it. Purse, Laptop bad, Jacket pocket... everything. I'm delighted with the design of the book as well as the contents. You will not at ALL be disappointed I can assure you.

Suukkoja ja haleja xo Kiipis!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Phrasebook 3 Jun 2009
By Kevin M. Burns - Published on
This is a great book. I took it with me to Finland and also did some studying before traveling to Helsinki and Oulu and Kemijarvii.

If you can get your hands on this book it is well-written and has many useful phrases. The people I met were able to understand what I was saying...which goes a long way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good information. 31 Mar 2009
By Alisha McAdams - Published on
I love this book. It has an easy to use dictionary full of general, everyday words and useful phrases. It also has a grammar lesson in the begining.
For someone studying on their one in spare time or just starting out, it's awesome. Lots of words you use everyday and phrases as well.

I do agree with the other reviewer, if you are in a college class or advance and need to use words like, it's not the greatest.

This is probably the best and most straightforward Finnish book I've come across with. Such a simplistic looking book but it covers a lot. I own 4 other Finnish books, this is the best one yet!
