How do you introduce yourself in Finnish? How do you say “I am” in Finnish? Do you always say “Minun nimeni on…” or do you use Finnish puhekieli? The puhekieli version is slightly different, depending on the region in Finland. In this video, I’ll teach you one of the most common varieties, one that you might hear in the Helsinki region (and why not elsewhere, too). Watch this video to learn some tips for when you meet new people and speak Finnish with them!

Make sure you turn on the Finnish or English subtitles as the video is in Finnish.

Here’s an example of two characters introducing themselves to each other at work. This image is from a lesson that is part of my online Finnish course for beginners – Start Finking (available inside the Finking Cap Club).
