People speak English almost everywhere you go, so you often end up just ignoring your phrase book and letting them do the work. But this book is so easy to use that it made me really want to have a go. The Finns are extrememly friendly anyway, which helps, but being able to find what I wanted to say, fast, was the secret. And when I wasn't using it, I was just reading the little snippets of info about the country and the culture, which really helped me feel I understood the people better by the end of my time there. Now I'm going to get ones for other languages.

Right, first things first. I'm a native speaker so know what I'm talking about here :)

My boyfriend got this recently in order to brush up on his (non-existent) Finnish skills. However, this is a phrase book and if you are looking to learn Finnish it won't really help you. It is good if you go for a holiday to Finland and want to learn a few phrases, or a few key words.

The book is divided in colour-coded sections - there is a short dictionary at the back, some basic expressions at the front, and the mid-sections relate to phrases useful for travelling, food, shopping etc. There are also some cultural snippets, which I found pretty accurate.

The pronounciation guides are fine, and accurate, but the language is very difficult for English people to pronounce so don't despair if people can't understand you. Effort is obviously always appreciated, but you might find that most Finns speak English anyway, so you might not actually even need the book. Good to have it at hand though, just in case!
