9780071420082: Teach Yourself Finnish Complete Course (Book Only) (Teach Yourself Language Complete Courses)

Teach Yourself Finnish is the book/CD course for anyone who wants to progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking and writing Finnish with confidence. Although aimed at those with no previous knowledge, it is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing knowledge for a holiday or business trip. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in 18 thematic units progressing from introducing yourself and dealing with everyday situations to talking about work and driving in Finland. The first five units are a survival package. They give a basic introduction to the kind of language you need when you visit the country. In the later units you will become familiar with many aspects of Finnish life as well as the language. The emphasis is on communication throughout with important language structures introduced through dialogues on the accompanying recording. There are plenty of exercises to practise the language as it is introduced and tips throughout to help with grammar. Cultural information boxes give useful advice and information for anyone planning a trip to Finland.

The new edition has been updated and is now accompanied by a double CD with extra audio material. Popular features of the previous edition have been retained:

- English-Finnish vocabulary

- glossary of grammatical terms

- a 'taking it further' section to direct learners to further sources of real Finnish

The book (ISBN 0340 887494) and CDs (0340 887516) are also available separately.
