    I'm not saying now :p Wait for me- I'll come :D

    Berlin is awesome, but unfortunately in most of the countries this is the situation:
    -Where do you live?
    -In the shithole of this goddamn place..
    -Where?
    -Uuuuuum, ..., THE CAPITAL!!!

    Kinda back-to-the-topic thing:
    Can you guys post links to some nice online Finnish-English dictionaries? Google translate sux, Babylon, too. There was one Online- Diccionario, but it doesn't work anymore :(

    Compared to Serbia and Bulgaria it's not that bad :lol: Probably you'll like it there :) However, if you visit Tampere, Oulu, Rovaniemi etc. (jne :D) you'll see that Helsinki is not that special- sure, it's beautiful, but FAR not the most beautiful thing about Finland :)

    Everyone interested in Finland, READ THIS! There's some "real" facts about Finland. (I haven't read the whole thing, but it actually mentions Bodom in the end)

    (No offense to anyone living in some of the countries they mention)

    http://www.sanakirja.org/

    Sanakirja = Dictionary

    It's a Finnish site so it has most of the words that any normal person would use, and since everyone knows English it has a lot of English words too. (A lot more than I know, and I've been able to speak English since I was 4, which makes 12 years) Also, remember to set it to "fi-en". (Right under the part where you write the word you want to translate)

    And I agree with Helsinki not being the best place in Finland. Espoo, for example, is a lot better. (Maybe not for a vacation site, but to live)

    Also, you said the capital is the shithole of every country. That's not true. In Finland it's Turku.

    Google this and you'll see:

    On suomen perseenreikä = Is Finland's asshole

    Why couldn't I handle it? I don't even live there. From all the cities I've visited in Finland, Helsinki is one of my least favorite cos' all it has is buildings everywhere.

    Also, that's not my opinion, it's just a wide known phrase, that everyone in Finland, including you, knows.

    Ps. I've never been in Turku so I can't say if I agree or not with it.

    You know, the weirdest thing about Finnish is that FINNS always say how hard and impossible it is, but actually it's not that difficult :lol:
    Sure, it's different, but IMPOSSIBLE... absolutely not :D

    Are you going to some school and you learn it there, or you have a private professor who's teaching you?

    Nah, in my school I study only Spanish and English. I take private lessons. The teacher studied at the University of Helsinki so her Finnish is pretty awesome- you have no idea how well she can speak it- I can't hear any Bulgarian accent and if you think, that Laiho speaks fast... He doesn't! :D
    Seriously, Finnish is not that difficult so if you want go ahead and study it! :) There are some words longer than the Great Chinese Wall and some catchy grammar shit, but despite that it's nice. :)

    Cool. Yeah, Finnish is the hottest language I know.

    Well, I kinda know a few words, also to count to ten, and some every-day phrases, but that's it. Of course I want to learn more, but it takes time.

    Thanks for the answer, my we-love-Finnish-language buddy.

    Oh, BTW Bodomholic I totally forgot to post those here. Check them out- those first videos are very important part of their grammar and, like my Finnish teacher says, no matter how hard you try to escape them, you just cannot :lol: If you manage to learn these babes the entire Finnish will be in your feet. Enjoy! ;)

    Those three helped me a lot. Unfortunately, this youtuber is no longer uploading videos, which is sad :(
    However, here you go one more

    inFinnish is still uploading videos on YouTube, so if you have a YouTube account- go and sub to her channel :) Check out her other videos, too :D Hopefully you'll find them useful :)

    Something I find funny is that Hauta knows the Finnish vowel thing A,O,U / I,E / Ä,Ö,Y although being a semi beginner (I assume), whereas I had that same stuff in school just about three weeks ago, and I've been talking Finnish for about 14 years!

    Also, Hauta. If you have a word like ice hockey (jääkiekko) where the words are written together (in the Finnish word) then you don't need to worry about the vowel thing and change it to jaakiekko or jääkiekkö.
