My mother is a Finnish native and naturalized citizen of the United States. I've grown up hearing the Finnish is one of the most difficult languages in the world. The difficulty of the language comes up every now and again and she will describe its difficulty. I'm amazed at how difficult it is. Much, much more than the Spanish I've studied. I looked on-line to see what other charts fail to rank Finnish as one of the most difficult and found some. Those state that Finnish is more difficult to learn for native English speakers. Amyway, I visited family in Finland a few years ago. In the week I was there, I only found one Finn that didn't speak English. If nothing else, they learn it from watching television as most of their programs are in English. I say, don't bother learning Finnish.
