Learn Finnish: Language Learning Apps | KatChats

  • Published on Aug 31, 2015
  • Hi!
    So this video's purpose is to give a bit of a starting point if you're wanting to start learning Finnish and have no idea how to go about doing it. These are some of the apps I would personally use if I were to try learning Finnish!
    Last week's video - General tips for people wanting to start learning Finnish:
    HelloTalk: www.hellotalk.com/
    Hopefully that's at least a little helpful! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!
    *Just to let everyone know, this was all my own opinions etc. I didn't get paid by anyone or whatever, so this is all my own personal thoughts and recs for real haha! :D*
    What is your favorite language learning app?

    I just installed Android app of memorise and it doesn't have Finnish language to learn and neither do I find any " other " language options. This app was my favourite while learning Chinese..

    People need to help add to the FInnish on Memrise. Not a lot of contributors that are organized.

    If you already know some Finnish, you could read or listen to "selkokieliset uutiset", it's news in really easy Finnish, not difficult words or long difficult sentences, it should be easier to understand :) you can find them easily on the internet, and if you wan to listen to them, there's also subtitles so you can read them at the same time as you are listening to it, and they speak a little slower too. And there are also books that are written like that, in easier and more understandable way, they're called "selkokieliset kirjat" or "selkokirjat". I just thought these might be helpful for some people that are trying to learn more Finnish, but if they feel like normal news or movies or books are too difficult for them!

      +KatChats Hei, you said in the video that you used Memrise for learning French and Swedish, I agree it's a good one, I learn Dutch and Finnish on this website but have you tried Duolingo ? It's based on the same way of learning and it's free like Memrise, but you have small explanations and you don't only learn words but sentences, I mean you learn in which place you have to put such or such word so I find this one more helpful, you can learn French and Swedish on it but unfortunately for people who want learn Finnish, this language isn't available on Duolingo. I have to say also that I found a few mistakes on Memrise for Dutch words so people have to be careful with some courses. Greetings from a French subscriber :)

    You said " emerge" instead of " immerse". Learning a language is amazingly hard.

    I've been using Memrise for some months, it's nice to get some vocabulary (to memorize some words). I've been trying Hello Talk for a couple of days, but it seems that Finns are not up for portuguese. ;P

    Another app (and this is not and phone app,you can use it on your computer too - but also on your phone) is " Loecsen " .You can choose one of many languages (MANY languages),and then you have like " lessons " I guess,such as essentials,conversation,learning,colors,looking for someone,etc,and then you play the word so it says how a native speaker would say the word.After every lesson you take a quiz to see how good you've been so far and you get points (so,depending on a language,it can be ?/28,?/15,etc.) Thanks to that,I know can understand Czech language real good like I can read anything in Czech,so now I'm learning Bulgarian and It's so easy to learn yet it really does the thing!

    Very helpful video :) I've just downloaded Memrise, too. The audio voice is quite funny XD
    What does 'bussi' at 2:37 mean? I guess it could mean 'bus' and not 'kiss' as in German.

      +Sebastian Fischer Thank you! And yes the bussi there meant bus! :)

    The problem with "social" kind of apps is that everything turns into a dating "talk".But Hello talk sort of prevents that,I like that about it.But all in all i think its better to find a Finnish e mail pal to learn the language.Thanks for the video! :)

    • KatChats

      +Seyma Sara Oh yeah tell me about it! I like how you can limit who can contact you, like my settings at the moment are for girls only so I haven't had that problem yet ^-^
