Finnish is easy to pronounce for me, but the grammar is so difficult. However, I will try^^

Yes. When I was in Vietnam, my homeland, I was told that my native language's grammar was the most hardest, but now I find out a new competitor for my native language :p

Suomea ei oo niin vaikea Smile

in English...it is just a little bit hard. ok easy for me to talk, but my opinion is that no language is hard to learn if you have the right attitude towards it and the right person to teach you Wink

btw, a topic to learn Finnish would not do bad if anyways it is about it.

i think finnish is difficult, but not so much. It's easy for me to pronounce, the most difficult part is to learn words by heart, cuz they are toooooo long sometimes Shocked
I learn it by my own, and it's going good.
Hope to speak finnish perfectly someday Smile

yes that's true, most people see a difficulty in the lenght of the words and pronouncing them (think about for example 1997 -tuhatyhdeksänsatayhdeksänkymmentäseitsemän Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing and this is not the longest word) and with the so similar word with a different meaning (mutta-but, muuta-others, muuttaa-to move,change xD)
congrats to your for learning it on your own, i have some friends that learned also alone, so nothing is impossible Wink

It´s written Kiiti ;-) the y is pronounced different.

Well I think Finnish is difficult when it comes to the grammar.
AT the moment I should be learing for my exame on Tuesday which will include local caes, gradation and things like that.
The 16 caes just don´t make it easy but after living here for a while it´s just totally understandable why Finnish has no future tense XD

Something what really made me laugh while I was practising for my presentation was when my fiancee looked totally shocked at me when I pronounced "minä tapaan ystänvieni" wrong and it became "I kill my friends" instead of "I meet my friends"

i have to agree on that. Laughing
everyone from my group (i'm studying Finnish at the university) is telling it's pretty hard, but honestly i don't find it that hard. ok, at some places the grammar is pretty khm difficult, but all in all i think there are even harder to learn languages as well.

I have to say Finnish is hard but not as hard as French.

Anyway I think u have to be really carefull how u pronounce the words because between tapa and tapaa is so much difference.
Between "killing" and "meeting" is in Finnish just one a and a slight difference in how u speak it.

haha yes that was one of the first differences i ever remember Laughing one of my groupmates was having a discussion as an exercise with her neighbor and she told the killing instead of meeting... the teacher was like Shocked Shocked
and the same goes with mutta, muuttaa though here is a little more difference than just one letter.
