Easy Finnish podcast challenge

Here's a challenge of the week for you: Listen to my simple Finnish podcast, only one episode a day! I have chosen you seven different episodes from my channel. As you might have noticed, I have no special skills in audio anything, I just record the episode on my phone or with Audacity, choose a picture that has something to do with the topic, write a short description, and publish it online. I know I still have a lot to learn, and I should really speak slowlier, but I'm learning.

Please let me know what you would like to hear next! I can also try to interview a famous person and then write a story for Selkosanomat.

Available courses:

  2. This idea works perfect when for example we are working and listening at the same time. Would you also please speak about Suomen sää ja liikenee. If you could also suggest on few topics that are possible to appear in YKI keksi taso exam kirjoittaminen, it would be very helpful.. Thank you.

  3. Is there any site or any link where there are past YKI test questions available?? That would be a great help to prepare on the possible questions..Thank you.

    1. Not that I know of. Have you read this post about the exam?

  4. Is there anywhere that we can read the text of these podcasts? It would be very useful to listen, then go back and read
