    Irrelevant countries like Finland always speak English because no one ever spread their home tongue

      Been in Helsinki last July, everyone is nice and speaks English. City is almost empty during summer, beach is nice and quiet, and everything it's fucking closed at 8 pm (except liquor stores and Mc Donald's).

      I spent like 10 days there and the only word in Finnish I learned is "kiitos" (thanks). Everything is signaled in Finnish, English and Swedish.

    Most Finns can understand English. Old people and rural areas are the main holdouts.

    Additionally, Swedish is very well known.

      Finland in Summer is actually pretty decent. Outside summer, you shouldnt visit unless you're interested in winter activities.

              Finns generally speak very good English. It's just a bitter virgin from /misc/ trying to shit up a thread about traveling to places he can't even place on a map.

          Maybe you should move to another country, we don't need more of you fucking "so sorry you had to see this" assburgers here.
          Finland is awesome in the summer for some cottagecore adventuring, welcome all SighSee friends to enjoy the nightless nights of the north.

        May I ask which town it is? Depending on your answer the activities available will range from
        >getting blackout wasted at the towns sleezy bar and heading to the local grill to participate in a knife fight at 7 AM
        to
        >seeing local sights, eating well at a restaurant doing some fun nature things and maybe hitting up a local big city to see if theres somethig going on at the market at 7 AM and then getting blackout wasted at the towns sleezy bar and heading to the local grill to participate in a knife fight at 7 PM

            The old part of town there is nice for half a day but if the weather is nice, there will be a lot of tourists around. The restaurants in that area will also be expensive.
            You will also be close enough to Helsinki for a day trip if that's something people are interested in. Other than that, not much to do but to get drunk and enjoy the Finnish summer (weather not guaranteed)

      How the fuck are dutch and english so closely related linguistically when they sound nothing alike

      Its all dkhoodr vasrpedat oomeneen gibberish that makes no sense in english

      German, french, and spanish I can start to comprehend if you slow it down and give me subtitles, but baltic languages... what the fuck man

        From my personal experience, I find that when I read a Dutch sign, it just looks like English having a stroke. It's not a 1:1 match, but I can vaguely understand it.

          It’s because frogs raped english with their dirty words. Otherwise, Dutch is pretty similar to English. You can pick out a lot of words in dutch that are pretty similar to English words. Plus, grammatically, Dutch is very very similar to English.

    You can get around in Finland by speaking Swedish as well. Finland used to be the eastern province and all the kids are still forced to learn Swedish in school.

    If you are staying in bigger cities, english will do just fine. We start learning english pretty early in school so most of the people will atleast understand you, except older folks (45+)
    Learning few phrases and words will make people like you more, like anywhere

    While I've heard that most Finns can speak English quite well, apparently the one thing they aren't good with are gendered pronouns. I've heard that everyone is a "he," including actual women. I've heard this is because the Finnish language doesn't use gendered pronouns, and they slip up when they speak English.

    I actually think this is hilariously based.

      Finnish language doesn't have gendered pronouns, and in the south we use "it" or "that" to refer to people, and "he" for animals.
      As for why some people slip and only use "he" or "she" when referring to people in English I have no clue. I've mostly heard it from older people and from those who can't speak English at all.

      You'll do fine in English, just learn some basic greetings, "puhutko englantia?" "kiitos" and "anteeksi" or "sori"

    Finns are OK. Heavy on the autism and you can tell the lack of sunlight really fucks with them. But they're way more easygoing than say, Germans, once you get a few drinks in em. The women are wackjobs, though.

    Everyone speaks English save for some backwoods hicks. Nature is sort of like northern ontario/minnesota with better fishing and just as many bugs... it's super pristine bush so a great place to ride ATVs, fish, hunt, snowmobile, etc

    Girls are somewhat slutty, perhaps more so than Germans but less than swedes. From my experience they're a bit whacked, heavy autism, severe mood swings, random emotional outbursts, just nutjobs

      this is spot on, coming to finland is a waste of money. go to sweden or norway instead.

      Do we really all have that reputation, germans I mean? I thought it was just my autistic ass being retarded and overthinking everything.
      How do you get to drinking with finns(or swedes, I´m considering Finland for later but most likely Sweden soon)? Just hit up a bar and sit next to some random guy or get to know people somewhere else?
