About the Finnish Language

  • Finnish belongs to the Finnic branch of the Finno-Ugric family of languages.
  • Its closest relative is Estonian; Hungarian is a distant cousin.
  • It is spoken by approximately 5.2 million people, mostly in Finland, and by some in Sweden and Russia as well.
  • There are three varieties of standard Finnish which are spoken throughout the country:
    • kirjakieli ("book language") - used in official documents, official speeches and the daily news,
    • yleiskieli - the standard language used in schools; it is formal and correct, though more relaxed than the "book language," and
    • puhekieli ("spoken language") - more casual variety used in everyday conversation, which changes frequently.

      This course teaches the standard Finnish language, yleiskieli
