What's harder to learn-
Finnish or Norwegian?

I want to know because the college I want to go to will only accept people who speak two+ languages.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Ei suomi oo kovin vaikeeta... Norjaa en kyllä osaa vitun vertaa


I have no clue which is harder, but as a native Finn I'm guessing Finnish. Norwegian is very close to Swedish.

Hungarian and Finnish are in the same language family, and there's tons of likenesses.

From what I've heard, the Balto-Uralic/Finno-Ugric are some of the hardest languages to learn.

Finnish is a serious undertaking.

I speak German, French, Spanish, Swedish, and a little bit of Russian; I originally went in for a minors in Finnish as well as all of the aforementioned languages (language is the next best thing to music), but had to drop it. The further north and east you go in Europe, the more elaborate the languages become. Conjugating in Finnish really made me despise the language, even though it sounds amazing when spoken fluently.

So, stick with Norwegian, or better yet, learn your German first. Other Northern European languages are much easier to learn once you have a good German background.

Finnish is harder. Plus that if you learn Norwiegan you will be able to talk to Swedish AND Danish people with no problem......

Sounds like a pretty darn good deal to me man..

Norwegian is a little easier, but nether of those languages is easy to learn for someone who doesn't already speak a similar language.

Norwegian is indo-european

Finnish is not.

Learn Norwegian if you have English/swedish/german/french/etc etc as a first language.

Learn Finnish if you have Hungarian as a first language.


Norwegian is generally going to be easier though.
