Our Chatroom!

This Group is currently in the making, we'll be using the Blogs as a sort of Forum, with the 'Recent Blog entries'

This club is going on a bit of a slow right now.

Please show that you can speak [at least a bit] of Finnish, just to prove you are learning it, when you send a join request <3<3
I am not a teacher, and certainly am not fluent in Finnish, so please if you write something a little more advanced, have a translation so i'm not always asking my friend what youre talking about XD

It is quite clear that this isn't working, although I think it'd be a nice idea. I'm not cut out to run a group with the busy life I already have. However, it'd still be nice to get to know people with an interest in languages/finnish and help eachother out, as it's so valuable to know someone from the country when learning the language. Would you all be interested in a chatroom? It does not seem to work currently, I  believe this may be due to the inactivity as each chatroom lasts 30 days of inactivity before being deleted I think. I could set up another.
Who's interested?

Just talk about anything in your blog! It doesn't need to be related to Finnish or Finland, it could be about your life, a vent, something you have questions about, deviantart, an interest. Just keep it decent, put 'Suomi' or 'English' into the title to let people know what Language it's in when reading the 'recent blog entries' and put Keywords at the bottom/within the text.
The more Finnish us Finnish-learners read and the more English that people perfecting their English can read, the better.


When posting on any blog in this group, your english will be corrected - in a friendly manner! As it's aim is to not only help people learn Finnish, but to help Finn's improve their English. We have members who are not Finnish and do not speak English as their main language, [these people also learn Finnish- hence the accepted invitation request] We're happy to correct their English too. [bonus!]

I, AshleyKerins, am English, and currently writing the English blogs,
If you are fluent in English, and responsible enough to write the English Blogs in the same style they are already written in, please contact me! -I don't want to be the only blog-writer!
I'm also looking for Finns who are responsible enough to write their own Finnish blogs, with English keywords, so that us learners [-who probabbly aren't nearly as good at Finnish as the Finnish members are at English] can follow the conversation with at least some confidence with what is going on and get to learn some new words aswell.



We will affiliate with groups that target general topics such as, Finnish Art, Finnish Music, Finnish community, and any other Language groups.
We will not Affiliate with groups supporting a Finnish band, or any fandom with Finnish members. We dont want to give the impression that this group is for anyone who likes Finnish things. There are so many fandoms and Finnish bands, to affiliate with them all could end up being misleading.

Suomalainen olen, mutta en pahemmin käytä kieltä kirjoituksissani.
Jos voin olla avuksi, mielelläni autan jos vain kykenen.
I'm finnish but I don't use the language much in my writings.
If I can be of assistance, I will help if I just can.

Seems like it's an rather old and inactive group but perhaps there is still some life running through it's veins. :)

Oi, ihanaa löytää tällainen ryhmä. <3
Olen suomalainen, joten puhun suomea äidinkielenä ja rakastan suomen kieltä. Olen pyrkinyt opiskelemaan suomea useampaan yliopistoonkin. :D
On aina mukava huomata, että ulkomaalaiset ovat kiinnostuneet Suomesta, suomen kieltestä ja suomalaisesta kulttuurista.
Oh, it's so nice to find a group like this. <3
I'm Finnish so I speak Finnish as my mother language and I love Finnish language. I have tried to get in to several universities to study Finnish, too. :D
It's always nice see that foreigners are interested in Finland, Finnish language and Finnish culture.

If I understood correctly, this is a group for people who want to learn Finnish? :) I'm Finnish, and I wouldn't mind writing a few blogs, if those are still wanted.
AshleyKerins Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2011  Professional Digital Artist

Oh yeah! :D
I'd love to learn that awesome language, but it's so difficult..may I become your trainee? :aww:
SandyQuinn Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011
I don't mind answering questions, if I can. :) And Finnish gets easier once you get the grammar down. :lol:
PapilioPulvereos Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
think so? :aww:
Well, it's hard to learn, because I don't have a book or something like that..
Iivis Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011
Aww this is so cute. :iconkawaiidesuplz:This is a group for learning Finnish right? I am Finnish myself so unfortunately there is not much for me to learn... Still I would be very interested to join, would that be okay? (maybe I could help or be useful in some other way)
AshleyKerins Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
It's for finns and foreigners. =] The Finns can speak English and improve if need be.. or help others speak Finnish.. or just hang!
it's a VERRRY dead group atm, I've not much time for it. But I encourage people to write blogs,--not that anyone does it, unfortunately. =[ There's a blog somewhere on the site about how to make a blog here, if you're interested. =]
