Finnish Texts for Beginners

Being able to understand a written text is essential to learn Finnish or any other language. That is why we created this section. Here you will find texts in Finnish with reading comprehension exercises so that you can practice and improve your level of the language. In addition, each text has an audio file that you can listen to while you read it.
