How to impress Finnish tourists with your Finnish

This post is inspired by my own struggles with trying to impress French tourists in Hossa a couple of weeks ago. My French was quite awful, but the lady I was talking with seemed happy anyway. Here are some phrases that you can use when talking to Finnish tourists exploring the world:

Feel free to translate these sentences into your language in the comments! :)

p.s. Schools will start in Finland next week! Have you read my post about a guide for schoolkid's parents in easy Finnish?

If there's one thing I've learned from this post it's that there are still people who use travel agencies! :O

Anteeksi, mutta oletteko suomalaisia?

How do we pronounce Finnish, mostly like English, straight or there are words like Spanish "double L" goes silent and similar?

Nice article. It's helpful especially if you need to work with finnish people (probably if you need to find and have an interwiews with candidates like here - www.ictdirect.fi) and make an impression.
