Finnish Explained: New video series! ‘Savuton kaupunki’

I’m very happy to announce the start of a new YouTube series I’ve been working on called: Finnish Explained!

I love breaking down and demystifying Finnish so I’ve used that as inspiration for this first season. In each video, I’ll take a short sign written in Finnish and explain, not only what it means, but also the grammar behind it. Sometimes there are nuances, subtleties and other fun stuff. Overall, Finnish has always been a wonder… and learning the language has left me with a lasting impression of awe about how we express ourselves, communicate and what language shows us about our perception of the world.

I hope you enjoy the series as much as I’ve enjoyed making it!

In this first episode of Finnish Explained we cover the words on the sign ‘savuton kaupunki’ and the associated grammar we can learn from just these two words.

Please leave comments or questions below, and don’t forget to send in your own signs for future episodes!

Hi! I’m Irina.

I’m a multibelonger to Finland, Canada and Romania, without ONE language or culture to call my own – I have several. My intention is to be present where I am and find inner peace and harmony where ever life takes me. I’m embracing the gems of the ongoing cultural and linguistic transition which is my life and hope to inspire others interested in doing the same. Click here to find out more!
