How to answer the question ‘Puhutko suomea?’ (Do you speak Finnish?)

This is probably the most important question you will come across when learning Finnish:

“Puhutko suomea?” = Do you speak Finnish?

How you answer will determine how others see you and which learning opportunities come your way.

In this video, I’ll share:

  • why you want to avoid uttering the phrase ‘en puhu suomea’ at all costs
  • a few more phrases you need to learn if you’ll be answering ‘KYLLÄ, PUHUN SUOMEA’
  • the #1 mistake you want to avoid when answering ‘KYLLÄ PUHUN SUOMEA’

And finally, there’s a challenge at the end for you to take on!

Now you can accept the challenge in the comments below, and report back with your experiences – maybe you’ve already made the switch and have a story to share. Either way, I’d love to hear from you!
