Besides comics, we have some free youtube videos that teach conversational Finnish. There is material for both beginners and more advanced learners.
Learn Finnish With Free Comics
Recently I have been concentrating more on creating videos on Youtube. The channel is called Finnish Language Nuggets. It contains material such as vlogs from Finland (mostly in slow language) and lots of useful phrases for conversations.
Below you can find a list of all the Finnish comics of this website. They are designed to help you learn natural spoken Finnish with some humour.
First, I want to say a few words about colloquial Finnish (puhekieli). The dialogues in these comics are in natural spoken Finnish, which is spoken in Helsinki and in some other cities in southern Finland.
Thanks to media, this form of the language is understood in other parts of the country too. You can read more about colloquial Finnish in this wikipedia article.
Here are the comics:
Surya and Cheeky Finnish Girl Sini (with Conversational Connectors) new!
Basic Finnish Grammar With Comics: Verbs 1 new!
Surya cleans up his apartment (and has some anger issues) new!
If the Finnish level in these comics feels a bit high, you may want to watch this video. There you will find basic Finnish questions and other phrases, with English translations.
If you want to learn most of these questions in Standard Finnish, I recommend checking out these videos (link 1, link 2) from the Youtube channel FinnishWithAnna. She has many good videos about Finnish grammar too. Here is Anna’s website.
More comics coming soon.
If there are some problems with this website, you can read all of the comics in our Facebook page too.

Recommendation (not an ad)
How to learn Finnish as easily as possible? I recommend using the Glossika too. In addition to basic phrases, it goes into more specialized vocabulary with thousands of sentences. As you can see from the screenshots below, you can choose the topics to learn.
I use Glossika in my own language studies. I do not get money from this recommendation! I just want to make it easier for people to learn Finnish, and if you want, potentially dive deep into the language.
I have collected links to fun and interesting videos that you can use in your studies. They include comedy, animations, cute songs and TED talks.
And here are some learning tips. Perhaps you will have fun with the a few of those techniques and resources. There are many ways to learn effectively, usually these are ways that you find enjoyable.
