I would love to learn more Finnish before I visit Finland. Are there any websites from which I can access or download free MP 3 files of the language? How about radio stations providing basic Finnish? Fu-hsing Su in Taiwan
There are at least some internet-pages, where it is possible to learn Finnish language online. Here are two pages, where teaching language is English: www.finnishschool.com and http://donnerwetter.kielikeskus.helsinki.fi/finnishforforeigners.
Also on YLE’s (Finnish Broadcasting Company) internetpage you can find material for studying Finnish language. The page is mainly in Finnish, some information in English you can find on http://oppiminen.yle.fi/in_english. A course with English as teaching language : http://oppiminen.yle.fi/easyfinnish .
The course http://www.yle.fi/opinportti/supisuomea
is mainly in Finnish only, but there is a course booklet in English available. On the page http://oppiminen.yle.fi/suomi it is possible to download video Supisuomea.
At the moment Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE is not having any Finnish course on radio.
