  • Kerran viikossa. - Once a week. 
  • Kaksi kertaa kuussa. - Twice a month.
  • Kolme kertaa vuodessa. - Three times a year. 
  • Joka kesä. - Every summer.
  • Tosi harvoin. - Very rarely. 
  • En koskaan.- Never.

Milloinkävit viimeksi sun kotimaassa? - When did you last visit your home country?

  • Viikko sitten. - A week ago. 
  • Kaksi viikkoa sitten. - Two weeks ago.
  • Viime vuonna. - Last year.
  • Toissa kesänä.  - The summer before last summer.
  • Monta vuotta sitten. - Many years ago.

My father was Finnish but I have lived in Canada all my life and speak only English.
Can someone give me the correct pronunciation of my surname, Tuori?
Thank you.
