The Finnish language (suomi)

The Finnish language is a Finno-Ugric language and one of the official languages of Finland. There are about 4.9 million native speakers of Finnish.

Despite the geographical location of Finland, Finnish is not closely related to the Scandinavian languages, but to other Finnic languages, such as Estonian and Karelian. 

Finnish is an agglutinative language, which means that words are formed by adding various endings to the word stem.

The Finnish language is known for its complex case system, but on the other hand, word order in Finnish is quite free, which makes it easier to form sentences.

WordDive is one of the best online language courses that I have ever used. I thought I was really bad at languages, but with WordDive I have learned more than 300 study items permanently in a short time. Sometimes I study more than 2 hours per day. Even then it doesn’t feel like I’m spending a long time studying because it’s so fun and rewarding.

The efficiency is way better than it would be in school. The program tells you when you are making progress or when you are too tired and should take a break. WordDive has become a daily companion for me. I enjoy studying and becoming better. It’s also nice to notice that you can learn new things even at this age.

WordDive is very addictive, and the words stick to your mind.As a researcher of digitalization, I can say that WordDive is an excellent example of gamification, because in WordDive, the motivation comes from outside the game: improving your language skills. It’s nice to attend meetings now that I can express myself properly.
