When I first started understanding Finnish around me, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Seemingly normal signs were instantly transformed into the most fascinating text! Why? Because I’d learned each word, each grammatical construction over time and suddenly, a sentence understood meant the coming together of all those little pieces. How miraculous is that?! And yet, this is the power that lies in each of us… Today I pick apart our longest sentence yet.

About 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.
