    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    В Финландии тоже много учителей шведского. Пойдите сюда! Сможете одновременно преподавать русский мне.
    I'm but a beginner in Russian, so please correct me.
    However, I'm supposed to be good in English, so if you correct me there, I become very angry! Grr!
    And if you, for some reason, need help in Finnish, I'm glad to help.

    Why Swedish?

    Much better to learn the beautiful and musical language of Norwegian! It is sooo much more useful and will give an extra dimension to your soul!

    Ah, but there you see! Norwegian is the hub between all three languages! Learning Norwegian you'll be able to read Swedish AND Danish (and New Norwegian)! Besides, Norway is the third largest exporter of oil in the world (after Russia and Saudi Arabia)!

    There would be nothing wrong with Norwegian if there wasn't this horrible thing called 'tonelag' - this horrible thing will give you a lot of headache. Norwegian textbooks must come with a health warning. So learn Danish and excersize your throat muscles instead .

    That is what makes the language so beautiful and melodious! What is harder is all the 23049856 dialects this small country of 4.5 mill people have!

    Norwegian and Swedish are a pain cause of the ____ intonation or whatever, I guess that's the tonelag.

    True linguistic story about how this frikkin tonelag thing came about - the Norwegians and the Swedes were so fascinated by Danish glottal stops that they tried to immitate them in their respective languages but to no avail - coming from farther north they were slower than the Danes and their tones were lagging far behind. This is how tonelag came into existance.

    It's colder up there, oral fluid solidifies under those conditions, making it harder to speak fast!
