Why should you learn Finnish?

The answer is simple: Why not? The Finnish language is without a doubt difficult to learn, but which language isn’t? You may already know this quote from Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” The same applies to learning languages. It all starts in your mind! So, if you are motivated and ready to take on a new challenge, here are some reasons why learning Finnish is definitely a good idea!

  • Finnish words aren’t gendered. Unlike, for instance, French or Spanish, you won’t be getting a headache trying to find out whether you say “le voiture” or “la voiture”.
  • The Finnish language has no future tense! Context is the key.
  • Learning a new language creates new pathways in the brain.
  • Finnish is a phonetic language, meaning that its pronunciation follows its written form, so no pronunciation traps! This makes the learning process a thousand times easier.
  • Finland was named “Happiest country in the world”. So, if you plan to move here, you might consider learning Finnish. The beauty of the language is breathtaking and amazing!
  • Learn Finnish for travel purposes: When it comes to culture, Finland has a lot of diversity, a complex and rich history, as well as a vibrant natural beauty. Definitely worth a visit.

What are idioms?

Idioms are a type of figurative language, meaning that they are not always to be taken literally and may be difficult to understand since its meaning cannot be derived from the conjoined meanings of its elements. Nevertheless, they add color and mystery to a language, making it richer and spicier. Usually, idioms are based on the experiences of previous generations. Idioms can be found in any language, so obviously the Finnish language is not an exception. Finnish idioms too, reflect the ways and habits of the Finnish people throughout the centuries. With this Finnish idioms course, you will be able to take a glimpse into the Finnish mind and culture. Knowing idioms will drastically improve your language and cultural knowledge! Idioms may cause problems to second language learners since most of them do not have simple equivalents in another language. This is why our linguists have taken it upon them to create this Finnish idioms course. This Finnish idioms course includes an explanation and literal translation of each idiom into English, allowing you to delve deeper into the beauty of the Finnish language. Learning Finnish through idioms will also help you to more easily remember vocabulary and improve your pronunciation. Learn 350 new Finnish idioms and impress the natives.
