About Finnish

Finnish is spoken primarily in Finland but is also an official minority language in Sweden. It is spoken by about 5 million people. As part of the Uralic language family, Finnish is most similar to Hungarian and Estonian.

There are 2 main varieties of Finnish in active use. The first is the formal language (yleiskieli) and the other is the colloquial or spoken language (puhekieli). The written form of the formal language is called book language (kirjakieli) and is used for nearly all written texts. The spoken language is used for popular TV shows and in the workplace.
