Lately I’ve been using ankidroid to study Finnish – or at least to expand my vocabulary a bit. I think it’s great but it won’t work by itself and requires quite a bit of tenacity.
The good Finnish deck: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1918695216 it’s called “Finnish järjestyksessä”.
It’s made by Rendall and it’s quite good, it took a list of the most common Finnish words (assembled by my company ;)
The deck won’t work by itself though, I get a lot of help by:
- Get the word in a sentence helps tremendously for learning it. Just learning the words helps a lot, especially if you don’t care so much about using the exact right form. Learning how to use them is also important, and that’s where talking or reading things help.
- Asking someone for assistance or clarifications about words is important. For example you might have words that are translated to the same word in English but you’d use them differently in Finnish.
Some notes about the contents:
- Some translations are not awesome or the first word that shows up is the archaic meaning. So for those you’d want to click the edit card and change the meaning to something modern.
- Some erisnimi words are just fairly useless unless you want to learn
Passed the Brocade Certified Ethernet Fabric Professional 2015 exam in May and I finally got the results back!
This one felt quite hairy compared to the other tests I’ve taken. Definitely recommend doing the course / getting some real hands-on experience for these certifications.read on
