Hi, here are some songs and artists that I and a few other people have recommended: 1, 2, 3 :)
Anonymous: i dont know how to pronounce the 'ä's. are they pronounced like in german or just like a 'a' or what ... ?
No it is actually not like the ‘ä’ in German. If you speak American English, it should be like the ‘a’ in ‘cat’. If you are familiar with IPA symbols, the sound is represented by [æ] :)
Anonymous: Hei! I really love your blog! Both Finnish language and these pictures are just so great. Are they yours or you get them from somewhere? Best wishes from European Finland-fan ;)
Kiitos! I’m very glad you’re enjoying the blog! The pictures are from Gettyimages.com :)
Happy birthday to my blog! It turns 1 today :D
Anonymous: I am an American of Finnish descent, and I would like to get a Sisu tattoo. Would the phrase "sisukan nainen" make sense as a tattoo, or should I just stick with the word "sisu" itself?
I’m not a native Finnish speaker, so I don’t wanna lead you wrong on this one. Anyone from Finland wanna answer?
