At first, the only reason I bought this book was because it was very cheap. Was I in for a surprise when I began to read this Finnish to English Phrase book. Need to know when the next train to Helsinki is? Flip to the Travel section (everythings split up into sections) and you'll find out how with an easy to understand pronunciation guide. With over 2100 different entries in about thirty or forty different sections, and with the size of the book fitting in the palm of your hand, its a must-have item for any traveller who expects to be needing to know Finn.

I kept this book in the pocket of my cargo pants throughout my stay in Finland. This book is by no means intended to teach you Finnish, but if you're looking for the bare essentials, this is the best you'll find. All the phrases have a pronunciation guide, however, I found this more confusing than helpful. Pronunciation in Finnish is very difficult. You're better off studying the pronuciation section at the beginning of the book and then apply it to the phrases. The best part of this book though is that the price can't be beat!

If I get into a bind, all I have to do is pull out this little gem and no misunderstandings due to language. A great little book to take along when you visit Finland:-)

I bought this before my buissness trip and it was perfect for my needs. It worked great when trying to translate a menu or when in the grecery store. It would be difficult to use if you are trying to become fluent in the language, but if you just need something to look up words, it is perfect. It had every word that I ever needed while I was traveling back and foreth to Finland for 6 months.

I bought this book along with a CD to get an understanding of Finnish for an upcoming trip. The book is broken out in sections to be useful and easily accessible/assistnace. Perfect size to slip into jean pockets for walking around the cities.

AWESOME! This book really was a life-saver when I first came to Finland. It has been a constant companion and a very handy reference while I continue to learn Finnish. I recommend this book to anyone intending to travel to this beautiful and amazing country!

This book is quite small..make like 3.5 inches tall. Perfect book to put in your pocket. I got it pretty quickly, so that's always a good thing. It contains little phrases here and there and has separate sections so if you need to find a certain phrase the index in the front can lead you to it. It doesn't cover a lot of material - it's just a beginners guide. So if you want a short little pocket book that can give you a fairly good start in Finnish then I'd recommend it. If you want something more advanced I'd try something else though.

I don't speak Finnish and don't know anyone that does. This was a gift to someone who works for a Finnish company. He hasn't been fired yet, so it must have the correct translations for "HellO, goodby, where is the restrooms, etc".
