HASH(0x8ff965ac) étoiles sur 5 Comments from a native speaker 27 avril 2001
Par Mika - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Although interesting, I find Panu's review way out of line. Saying that the language in this book is that of Helsinki Skinheads is absurd altogether. The Finnish in this book is simply the Finnish used in Helsinki (and most major cities), I can't see how on earth this has anything to do with skinheads.. This is the language used by youngsters in Disco's, clubs, on the streests, in the schools and universities etc. One could only hope that the visitor to this site will take Panu's comments for what they're worth.
For the book itself, it is quite good even if the way of describing Finnish grammar is highly un-orthodox. The vocabulary is quite comprehensive and most dialouges are well wuited for the learner.When completing this course, the reader will be able to converse with nativr Finnish speakers and take part in normal life.

HASH(0x8ff96600) étoiles sur 5 Good for intermediate/advanced learners, NOT beginners 23 janvier 2000
Par Patrick Campion - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is EXCELLENT for learning colloquial aspects of Finnish (contracted forms of pronouns, shortened verb forms, and other familiar forms). However, if this had been my first book on Finnish, I think I would have given it up as far too difficult. The grammatical explanations seem either overly complicated or overly vague for the beginner. However, for the intermediate or advanced student, this is an excellent way to improve your comprehension of colloquial Finnish and to make your own speech and writing more "authentic".

HASH(0x8ff96a38) étoiles sur 5 The best! 12 octobre 2000
Par Ranvel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I own a few other Finnish language books. Actually, all of the books that the local bookstore I visit had, which was like 5 or 6. Routledge's language courses are the best you can buy, I know because I've bought an array of books for an array of languages. But this one takes the cake; Author Daniel Abondolo delicately blends the professionalism or language books with the speech or normal people to create a very conducive environment for learning, especially with such a diffucult language. Abondolo teaches you the essentials of the language, as no single volume book could teach you an entire language. By the end of the book, you will be speaking the language seemingly as if you've known the language all your life, without the accent though. The authors credentials are confirmed by his other books, namely the Uralic Languages(editor+author), a highly technical book dealing with the language group with which Finnish is part of. The tapes provide a very useful tool, that is, hearing the spoken language through native speakers.

HASH(0x8ff96e04) étoiles sur 5 It's hard but it's worth it! 22 janvier 2002
Par Mike Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Is Finnish the most difficult language in Europe? Quite possibly, yes. Is it one of the most interesting? Definitely!
Unlike almost every other language in Europe (English, French, Russian, Welsh, Swedish etc etc) Finnish is not an Indo-European language. This means that it is unrelated to most other European languages except Estonian and Hungarian. Thus it is not surprising to find that the language is very different indeed, what about 14 cases for nouns?! The vocabulary is also very different from most other European languages. Given this, trying to learn Finnish is a real challenge.
So why do it? One reason is that Europe's largest collection of folk-tales is in Finnish since old stories lived on here for a very long time. The national epic of Finland, Kalevala, has rightly been considered equal to the Celtic and Greek Epics. Finnish is also a very beautiful languages, and the linguist J.R.R Tolkien (author of The Lord of the Rings) based his alven-speech upon Finnish, considering Finnish to be the most beautiful language in the world. Then there is also the joy of visiting Finland - one of the richest, cleanest and most developed countries in Europe Most people under 40 speak as good as fluent English but you don't get to know the culture in the same way without some knowledge of Finnish.
Colloquial Finnish is definitely your best guide to natural, spoken Finnish. It presents the grammar in a somewhat unconventional way, but it does manage to give a very thorough guide to all aspects of the Finnish grammar. The lessons are not too long, and are packed with conversations to help you learn the spoken language. In all, the book is a very good mix of grammar explanations, exercises, dialouges and miscs. Learning to pronounce Finnish is not too hard, but the audio-version is very helpful.
As can be seen from my review, I have fallen in love with both the country and the language, and this book has done more than any other to help me learn Finnish.

HASH(0x8ff96ee8) étoiles sur 5 Good but not best. 31 juillet 2000
Par Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The "Colloquial Series" is uneven in quality, but this is one of its better examples. Its only faults are those built into the series itself: too few exersises, too little reading, too little material recorded on the cassettes. It does a creditable job of explaining Finnish grammar and the language's most exasperating aspect, the many sound changes that bedevil non-Finnish students. It is a well-written book, and if removed from the constraints of this series it could be made into an outstanding learning tool.
The best course available is that by Meri Lehtinen published by Indiana University. It gives ample explanations and exercises for fluency and pronunciation. I got the book and recordings from the University and I believe that it is still available from that source. Also good is the Foreign Service Institute course, book and recordings available from the Department Of Commerce NTIS series (contact the Dept. of Commerce). "Finnish for Foreigners," published in Finland, provides good explanations of grammar and sound changes, but would be better if it gave more exercises for practice.
