Hello, I do not speak Finnish at all, but I saw somewhere if you want to have a coke in a bar you say "Yksi koki, kiitos", is that true? How do you say "A coke, please" in Finnish? Yksi kokis kiitos sounds so beautiful to my ears. ❤️❤️❤️ I just want to be sure.
Thanks. Encolpius

    Yes, that's correct. Yksi kokis, kiitos translates literally to One Coke, thank you.

    Kokis is an everyday word for Coca-Cola and as a proper name it should be written with a capital K, but it's become so much a common name that you can see it written kokis as well.

    Oh, so kiitos is not please but thank you, interesting. So it is uncommon to say please when you order something in Finnish?

    There is no exact equivalent for please in the Finnish language. To make a polite request, you may use kiitos in the end of the sentence, or you can begin your order with, e.g., saisinko... (could I have...).
