    Hi, I am reading a dialogue in Suomea Paremmin. Two people are arranging to meet and one says "Pistetään käymään". I can't find out what this means. Can anybody help, please?

    It's nigh impossible to say without context. If there's talk about arranging a meet, then it could possibly mean something like ”Let's get [this thing] going” but I'm not sure.

    That sounds about right. Two people are on the phone arranging for one to go to the other's house. Once they've agreed that that will happen one says
    "Pistetään käymään. Tultasko me vaikka kuudelta?"
    "Joo, se käy hyvin"

    What you say fits just right. Thank you!
