APPLEBY COMMUNITY LANGUAGES

FINNISH

I can offer one-to-one Finnish tuition at an hourly rate of £25. This could be split between several persons, if you know anyone else who would like to learn.

My husband Seppo is Finnish, and I spent more than 5 years living and working in Helsinki, so speak the language confidently.

Finnish is a fascinating language, completely different to all other European languages apart from Estonian, and presents its own unique challenges, including 15 cases! The grammar can seem quite peculiar to those familiar with French or Spanish, but the pronunciation is straightforward, and it is written exactly as it is spoken.

With a native speaker in the household, you are sure to pick up a good accent very quickly!
