Wonderful Program

I love, love, love this Finnish program! I was able to communicate simple phrases when I visited relatives
and while shopping in Finland! I completed level one and it was especially helpful in speaking greetings.
Everyone understood what I was saying! I highly recommend it!

I have not yet been able to test everything, but at the moment it's pretty good.

Very good software & great customer support

I am very pleased with this software. Great for the absolute beginner. (Later on I also bought TeachMe! Latvian.) Mostly I like the fact that you are able to learn at your own pace, that is very important to me, at least. I like the visuals (the analogies) and it does help, since I'm the visual type -> it's entertaining, well thought out and well structured. Maybe at some point there will be a third CD included in the package, a CD containing additional exercises, it would be perfect. Just a thought. Customer support is great too, I had some troubles with the key (I bought the software a few years ago and started using it recently) but they were very quick and successful in helping me make things work. Thank you! I highly recommend these Linguashop products.more...

Good way to learn languages

The course is an easy and comfortable way of acquiring a foreign language. It gives you the tools to remember the words you’ve learned as well as to improve your pronunciation.

I have Chinese, Romanian and Finnish and really enjoy learning these languages with TeachMe.
