5.0 out of 5 stars Gradual yet thorough approach for Finnish learners/revisers, 20 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Finnish: A Complete Course for Beginners (Teach Yourself Books) (Paperback)
The author's enthusiasm for Finnish comes through in this book, which deals not only with Finnish language but customs and culture too. The grammar of the language is set out in a gradual way and the chapters build well on each other. The subjects covered are useful for travellers and people intending a longer stay in Finland, and the book as a whole provides a constructive, contemporary guide to the Finnish language. It is in an approachable format and includes plenty of examples of 'real' Finnish in use, rather than just passages constructed to reflect grammatical points.
I have found it quite a fun book to use with a deceptively large amount of detail - somehow you absorb a lot of information without really realising it!
It is truly a book you can use to teach yourself, as it does not try to do too much too soon, yet packs in plenty of linguistic information at a rate that can be taken on board by an individual student.
