Tips for studying Finnish

You can start learning Finnish yourself by reading and listening to ‘plain Finnish’ news (Selkouutiset) and by watching TV-series with subtitles. Reading Finnish books and listening to Finnish music helps too. It is important to try to speak Finnish language as much as possible, for example in a coffee shop or in a grocery store. The most important tip is to not be afraid to talk in Finnish – be brave and curious!
