Hi! Tothian praised that I am fluenting in like 6 languages. This is perhaps too much of said but quite well I can read, write and speak Finnish, English and Swedish. In addition I can read German and a little French too.

Here are some phrases in Finnish:

GREETINGS

Hi! = Hei!
Good morning! = Hyvää huomenta!
Good evening! = Hyvää iltaa!
Good night! = Hyvää yötä!
Welcome! (to greet someone) = Tervetuloa!
How are you? = Kuinka voit?
I'm fine, thanks! = Hyvin, kiitos!
And you? = Entä sinä?
Good / So-So. = Hyvin / Menettelee.
Thank you (very much)! = Kiitos (paljon)!
You're welcome! (for "thank you") = Ole hyvä!
See you later! = Nähdään!
Good bye! = Näkemiin! / Moi!


EXPRESSIONS & WORDS

Good/ Bad/ So-So = Hyvä / Paha / Siinä ja siinä
Big / Small = Iso / Pieni.
Today/ Now = Tänään / Nyt
Tomorrow / Yesterday = Huomenna / Eilen
Yes / No = Kyllä / Ei


NUMBERS

One, Two, Three = yksi, kaksi, kolme
Four, Five, Six = neljä, viisi, kuusi
Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten = seitsemän, kahdeksan, yhdeksän, kymmenen

I love Finnish, but I hurt it when I try and speak it. (My grammar is horrific)

Are you from Europe? Because it's rare to find an American that speaks more than two languages. I'm an English speaker (obviously), but I'm fluent in German and Spanish as well. I can speak and read some Finnish, Dutch, Chinese, Hebrew, Russian, and Serbian, but I'm nowhere near fluent with those languages.

Laserskater is from Finland, and he's fluent in I think about like 6 languages, but that was about 2 years ago that he told me that, so there could be more since then.

That's cool. The only one I know of is Laserskater, and he's always been a cool guy. And I just now saw the part where Laserskater said what I said of him and how he's fluent in Finnish, English, and Swedish, and also how he knows some German and French too. Either way, it's still a very impressive skill to know that many languages.

For one thing, they don't use standardized testing and the teachers actually teach the subject instead of the test. They all seem to be smart too, I have yet to meet a stupid Finn.

Thank you for your compliments. Education system really is rather good in Finland. It is a traditon of 150 years. Other strong areas are healthcare, IT industry (Nokia), architecture (Alvar Aalto, Eliel Saarinen, Eero Saarinen who planned for example the Gateway Arch in St. Louis) and Ice Hockey (World Champinships 1995 and 2011).

But there are also cons too. Sometimes I can see them too close....;o)

well... maybe alcohol consumption could be less.

12.52 l/capita

(recorded 9.72 + unrecorded 2.80 )

Table of litres of pure ethyl alcohol consumed per capita in a given year:

Reviving old thread to say I love Finland! I went to Yllas back in January 2012 and is one of the best places I have been to! I really want to go back! The locals are great and helped me pick up a few words, but I couldn't tell you half of them now!
