I am looking for the phrases
'Where can I find ..... (bananas or the tourist centre)?"
"Can we have ...... (menu, coffee, the bill)?
Just basic sentences to paste nouns after the standard line :).
Yes, this is the so-called street language or casual language and often especially younger people are using it. I am amazed as your sentences are spot on. Thanks for letting the others know about this too! 👍
Casual, Häme region.
_Mitä sinulle?_ or even less formal _Mitäs sulle?_ is short for _Mitä sinulle kuuluu?_ : A greeting like "What's up?" Say it in a super casual situation, like a bar. You might get some news or gossip.
_Mitä jätkä?_ : "Whatup?" I was literally asked by a woman not to greet her this way. "You can say that to your male friends."
_Mitäs illalla?_ : "What's happening tonight?" Super casual way to ask a friend if they have plans.
Thank you for your question! Well, It depends on who you ask. In my opinion, it is not too formal but polite it is, respectful. Some younger ones would prefer to use the word "sori" more. It almost means "please forgive me" but we have our own sentence for that purpose, "pyydän anteeksi" or just "anteeksi". You can even say these both sentences for the same purpose, asking forgiveness. Hope this helps. 😄
Is it too formal to use Olen pahoillani in normal everyday conversation or is it equivalent to please forgive me in English.
Thank you so much for your positive message! 😇❤️️

We wish you good luck with your language studies.
Good start for very basic words I know Finnish is a very difficult language. I need to hear it spoken slowly.
Thank you for your questions. 'Mistä' means from where and 'Missä' means where. That's the difference. "Mistä sinä olet kotoisin?" and "missä sinä asut?" (Where do you live) for example. Hope this helps.😄
Let us know if you have any question.
When are 'Mistä' and 'Missä' used? Kiitos!
