All Finnish Comics

The dialogues in these comics are in natural spoken Finnish, which is spoken in Helsinki and in many 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.

Recommendation (not an ad)

How to learn Finnish as easily as possible? I recommend using the Glossika website too. In addition to basic phrases, it goes into more specialized vocabulary with thousands of sentences. As you can see from the screenshot 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.
