The English / Finnish Phrasebook is designed to be used by the English speaker to learn the basics of the Finnish language or for a Finnish speaker to learn the basics of English.
If you are intending to learn any new language, you'll need to get a phrasebook. The purpose of the phrasebook is to give you practice in real-life situations. Memorizing phrases ahead of time is the BEST way to use a phrasebook. Your grammar book, and sometimes even your course, does not give you the "Which room is mine?" kind of phrases. Yes, you will need to flip through the book to find responses or the next question on a different topic, but that is only if you do not practice a bit ahead of time. You can't beat this book - for the price and the small, yet concise and relevant content. Learn how to tell time, order food, as well as greetings and social conversations.
This is not your typical tourist phrasebook. It contains over 75 categories of terms in Finnish and English with over 4,000 terms, phrases and sentences. Also included is a guide to the Finnish alphabet and pronunciation.
Proper names may or may not be translated between languages. Generally country names are translated, but personal names, place names, and trade names (products) are not. Some words may provide an alternate translation or transliteration, others may not.
