Finnish Cultural Assimilation Lesson #19 Aku Ankka - Donald Duck

This year's birthday present was a subscription to Aku Ankka.

A lot can be learned from the citizens of Ankkalinna both culturally and linguistically. You will learn vocabulary from Aku Ankka that is difficult to pick up anywhere else.

Just don't tell anyone that you like Mikki Hiiri (Mickey Mouse), Finns prefer Aku, in fact some even identify with him.

  1. Hey, I love Donald/Aku too! I've never liked Mickey Mouse.
