The team in 2014 for those interested in studying Finnish

***

The team's name is Sisu

The team's motto is Tyvestä puuhun noustaan

"Rules"

1) Each member is responsible for his/her own log. It's not important if he/she creates a new log solely for entries pertaining to TAC in a given year or uses an existing one. The point is to study the target language(s) and when helpful or possible cooperate with the rest of the team. This thread may be used to post information relevant for the group or updates on one's progress as noted in the individual log.

2) Each member may dabble in any language as desired or even change the main target language(s) during the year as long as at least one target language is Finnish.

3) Each member may join other teams without losing membership here. One only needs to be studying at least Finnish to be on this team.

Roster for 2014 (as of Jan. 5, '14)

This would be great. I really can't join a big team, but a little one for Finnish only
would be feasible. I'm still a beginner, so I doubt I could help anyone with Finnish, I'd
be the recipient of help.

However, since you mentioned Skype, it's not really do-able for me due to having a dongle stick for internet, yesterday my internet was non-existent so I couldn't even do my memrise. This is rare but having a bad connection on Skype isn't, so if it's a necessity I guess I can no longer join. If it's not then I'm very happy to join and follow the experiences of everyone here.

Oh it's not a necessity! In fact Chung said he's *not* one to lead sessions on Skype though he doesn't mind if someone wants to do that.

How comfortable are people other than Serpent and I when it comes to writing an individual sentence in Finnish along the lines of "I see the car in the street" or "That's not a car. It's a truck." with the help of a dictionary and/or explanations from a book or online description of the relevant grammar?

Um...sadly, I probably would not even be able to write those sentences. As embarrassing
as that is, it's true. For the second, "Se ei ole auto. Se on kuorma-auto." (I had to
google the word for truck)

My current abilities:
-Tell you my name and ask for yours.
-Say where I live.
-My job.
-What languages I know and where I learnt them.
-That I don't understand, and do you speak English?

Yeah...I've got a long way to go. If I'm too much of a beginner, that's fine.

Not very...

I see a car in the street.
Minä katon autoja kadulla.

Is the partitive the same as accusative in German?

That's no a car. It's a truck.
Se ei ole auto. Se on avolaja.

I'm really just guessing here. No clue if this stuff is right. Had to look up truck, to
see, and a pdf of the case endings.
