Finnish is pronounced as it's written, which makes learning easier. Some words, like "kiinteistönvälittäjä" and "henkilöllisyystodistus", are difficult though. The grammar is also fairly logical, even if there is a lot of rules. "Kielen oppiminen on kuin laittaisi rahaa pankkiin. Se on hyvä sijoitus", says David Veney, master's degree student, who has studied Finnish.
