Hello Varsinais-Suomi!

ViestiKirjoittaja username420 » 2.4.2014 12:33

I can speak a little bit of the English. How do you do? This site is not very easy to navigate to me, or come in contact with the ones I'm looking for because my Finnish skills are so poor that I must use google-translate all the time to figure out a basic idea of what is going on here. Nice to meet you. Is there something wrong with this place, or does nobody ever post here because there is simply no point of this English speaking section of this forum?

The opening thread (read this first) dates way back but however this speaker's corner is relatively new. We had an english speaking section way back in the days but for some reason it was closed and removed, and now back again.

How do you do?


Getting by... Nothing major to complain about, nothing major to be cheerful for. I smoked weed last friday, a friend of mine shared a bong base, it was nice, as always. I used to be a hardcore daily smoker but i did the math and ended up with a conclusion that it (daily tokin') affected me more negatively than positively so nowadays i am smoking less but enjoying more.

Let us know how your spring is going and welcome to Turku (i got the impression you are new here...)

Greetings from close by as well. If you need any help navigating/asking questions/translating feel free to ask, I browse the forums daily.

And yeah, I think you're just the first English speaker to wander into here pretty much, this place is mostly dead.

Some people might still talk about a notorious forum member named Turisti. Turisti means a tourist, it might cause some misunderstandings. :)

WOW! Thanks for the responses, you all. This is rather surprising to me, how welcoming and warm you folks are. Thank you! How fantastic! I would love to write more in response to all of you, but I just now realized all of these responses, and it is so late here for me to write everything I'd like to say.I really should participate more here soon! I hope you have a nice weekend!

It is very hard for me to understand anything here, and as you might have realized, google translate from Finnish to English or vice versa sucks big time. I tried taking this silly beginner's grass growing test in order to even send a private message, but I failed because the google translate was so bad, and it wasted 15 minutes of my time. I had to get help from somebody to translate it for me, and it still was quite hard to understand what they meant at times. I don't know if I would understand much of what people are talking about around here. I'm trying to make some good Finnish friends though. They're hard to come by when you don't speak the language and you are an alien. I'm working on my Finnish language skills, but it seems like it will take another 25 years of studying and practicing. Thanks, Tulintakas.

Thank you, Bravia420! This is very useful and must have taken you some time! I think I will be referring to this post in the near future. You got a lot less typos than when I'm influenced! :D

Hey C-unit! It's nice to here you are surviving! That's something to be thankful for. I got drunk last Friday. It's good to hear you are enjoying more. I'm absolutely loving the spring time here. This is the mildest winter I've had here in Finland! I love seeing the robins looking for worms in the grass during the daytime, and hear all the different spring birds chirping. I'm so glad the winter is over, because I super much enjoy riding my bike in the nice sunshine. Even if it is not as warm as I'd like, it has the right spectrum!

Post count gets capped at 420 :P

And yeah, Finnish language is one of the hardest ones in the world afaik.

And the mildest winter in Finland? Mildest winter in my 23 years of living, was kind of weird even lol. But the summer is something to look forward to, i bet it's going to be nice. Awesome spring so far.

No problem bro! Finnish language is difficult to learn as it said, but luckily most of people here speaks and understands english quite well. I will also write some more slang terms here, next week will be so stressful at high school, lots of exams etc. but at weekend i have lots of time :)

I've heard the high school exams are super stressful here. I hope you do well. School is almost over, the Vappu is coming up soon so soon either you or some people you know will be celebrating in hopefully very nice weather. It is somewhat amusing to me to walk through the parks in Turku on May Day, because I've never seen so many liquor bottles and beer cans and Asians and Gypsi people running around super fast collecting them in my entire life, not even on Queens day in Amsterdam. Don't forget all the people pissing on the fence, and even groups of girls squatting down pissing in the bushes, or on the newspaper of Helsinki Sanomat in the front of parliement parliament with pee running down the hill or whatever it was. The list you made is super useful. I bet a lot of English speakers here did not pass the test because they could not understand. I failed even with translate.google.com. I'm not sure you guys know to what extent that works for Finnish to English.

Yup, lots of people extremely drunk that day, I usually try and avoid public places when it happens lol.

Yeah Finnish is the worst language to translate with google sometimes, words have so many different meanings. If the moderator reads this I can volunteer to translate it to English.

I can't see the 'Basaari' part of the forum. I have a tent and a bunch of stuff that goes with it that I should (sadly :/) get rid of. Is there a good place to post about it?
