Finnish with about 6 million native speakers occupies the position 103 in the ranking of the languages most spoken in the world.
In Finland the official languages are both Finnish and Swedish. Finnish is spoken by about 92% of the population.
In Sweden half a million people speak a Finnish dialect called Meänkieli which in Norway is the language of Kven people. Finnish is also spoken in Esthonia and Karelia, a russian region where 70.000 people speak Karelian, a Finnish dialect which has the status of being the official language. Besides, as a consequence of recent emigrations, groups of Finnish speakers also are to be found in Canada, United States and Australia.

Modern Finnish is the result of a compromise of unification of the various dialects that took place in the nineteenth century.
Nowadays there are two main variants of Finnish. One is the standard language (Yleiskieli) and the other is the spoken language (Puhekieli). The first is used in formal situations like political speeches. Its written form (Kirjakieli), it is used in almost every written text, even in the communications between common people. On the contrary, the spoken language (Puhekieli), is used in television and radio programmes and in working places too. Even in every day dialogues between people it is often preferred to the dialects, which are slowly disappearing.
