Publisher's Summary

Finnish belongs to the Finnic branch of the Finno-Ugric family of languages. There are approximately 5.2 million Finnish speakers, mostly in Finland, and some in Sweden and Russia as well. There are 3 varieties of standard Finnish: "kirjakieli" or “book language” which is used in official documents, official speeches and the daily news; "yleiskieli" or “standard language” which is taught in schools - formal and correct, though more relaxed than the "book language"; and "puhekieli" or "spoken language" which is a frequently changing, more casual variety used in everyday conversation. This course teaches the standard Finnish language, "yleiskieli."
The Pimsleur® Method has worked for millions all over the world. Totally portable; simple to use; Pimsleur® works so you don’t have to. Finnish Phase 1, Unit 01 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation.

Nice entry to speaking a complicated language.

This first chapter was easy to follow and each time I listened to it, was able to pickup subtleties of the language. I enjoyed the lesson.
