I'm the first hit when searching "rosetta stone finnish"!

So about a year and a half ago, i made a post about how Rosetta Stone doesn't offer Finnish as one of their languages and how frustrating that is. A year and half later still no Finnish Rosetta Stone, but i've discovered i'm not alone in my search! Every once in a while i get comments on that post from my fellow Finnophiles expressing their frustration as well. My assumption has been that they've been searching Google for "rosetta stone finnish" or something and way down the list my blog has popped up. I decided to check and see how far down i was.... and it turns out i'm first!


Isn't that nifty? I think it's pretty cool, and also very sad... In any case, i'm playing on a few language sites still trying to keep up my Finnish education. I'm always up for new suggestions, too, so keep them coming!

I am one of those people searching, and indeed your blog was the first hit. My interest stems from a desire to be able to communicate and read boards and such pertaining to some of my favorite bands, which all seem to be coming out of Finland. Hopefully Rosetta Stone will notice that there's obviously a demand for a Suomi edition.

Yup haha your the first, rosetta stone is dumb, finnish is a more spoken language then fucking swahili or zulu, or whatever it is

Haha I forth the "found you while looking for Finnish Rosetta Stone" I think its neat that I also found another GA/Atlanta native who is also interested in Finland, I thought I was the only one. :D

I also searched for the Rosetta Stone in Finnish. I wanted to purchase it for my husband for his birthday, and am heartbroken that it doesn't exist! Any news on whether they plan on making one?
