Hi FinnishPod101 listeners!

Are you good at helping out with the housework? Or do you leave that to others?

The dialoge has "Siivooja petaa sänkyä hotellihuoneessa."= "The maid is making the bed in the hotel room."


but the vocaluary has printed: sijata vuodetta=make a bed but the recording(normal speed) sounds like "perataa sänkyä"/the slower speed is correct with "sijata vuodetta"


It's confusing a bit when the 2 words for" bed" are used and 2 for "to make the bed" and incorrectly marked.

I see someone else encountered these words in another comment.


The regular speed recording for the vocabulary word "lattia" is not working. Fine on the slow speed.


I keep trying! If I had less housework, I'd have more time for Finnish!

Moi Päivi!


Haha yes it is good. That way you're not always confused when people say one thing instead of another. :grin:

Yes there is Corinna!

And it's just good to ask and learn different ways of saying the same things, absolutely nothing wrong with that! :smile: :thumbsup:

Moi Päivi!


Okay. :grin: Just wanted to make sure I understood. :wink: There seems to be a lot of different ways to say the same thing in Finnish. But English does that too. :laughing:

Moi Corinna!


Really clever questions again, thank you for sending them! Others can really learn from these too! :smile: :thumbsup:


"Laittaa" literally means 'to put' (something somewhere), but when used together with "laittaa ruokaa" it means 'to cook' or 'to prepare food'.

"Valmistaa" means 'to make', 'to prepare' or 'to manufacture', and therefore "valmistaa ruokaa" also means 'to cook' or 'to prepare food'.


And yes yes, "pedata sänky" and "sijata vuode" both mean "to make the bed". :smile:

"Pedata" and "sijata" are both verbs referring to the action of tidying up a bed, i.e. straightening the blanket/sheets etc. "Sänky" and "vuode" are both nouns meaning 'a bed'.


Parhain terveisin, Best Wishes,

In one of the other lessons the word "laittaa" was used in the context of food. Why is "valmistaa" used here? Just a question.


Also, in this lesson the video said "pedata sänkyä", which I assume is something like "to make a bed", but in the flashcards it's "sijata vuodetta". Do they both mean the same thing or are they different?
