Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nico: When you want to emphasize an adjective in Finnish, you can add some words before the adjective; Words like: erittäin meaning "very", todella meaning "really” and tosi also meaning "really". You can say, for example, suomen kieli on tosi helppoa meaning "Finnish is really easy!"
