Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Finnish Season 1, Lesson 25 - On the Phone. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to understand basic vocabulary for phone calls in Finnish.
Body
Becky: Here's the way to say 'Hello. (answering)' in Finnish.

Nico: [Normal] Antti tässä.
Becky: First is a word meaning 'Antti'
Nico: [Normal] Antti [Slow] Antti
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'here'
Nico: [Normal] tässä [Slow] tässä
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'Antti here.'
Nico: [Slow] Antti tässä. [Normal] Antti tässä.
Becky: Next up is the way to say 'Could I talk with Satu?'

Becky: Finally is a way to say 'I'll call again later.'
Nico: [Normal] Soitan myöhemmin uudelleen.
Becky: First is a word meaning 'I call'
Nico: [Normal] soitan [Slow] soitan

Nico: [Slow] Soitan myöhemmin uudelleen. [Normal] Soitan myöhemmin uudelleen.
Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nico: Back when everyone was still using landline phones, people would answer the phone by saying their name, or the family name: For example, Niemisillä meaning "at the Nieminen residence." Nowadays, the majority of households rely solely on mobile phones, and therefore people can usually see who’s calling on the phone screen. And so, names are no longer said out loud when answering the phone. Most often people will answer the phone by saying haloo meaning "hello"), or moi, hei or terve which all mean "hi".

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson and this series. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in another series!
Nico: Hei hei!
