Hei!

I have some exciting news to share with everyone! Finnish for English is finally in the Incubator! Take a look:

Finnish

After a whole lot of campaigning for the course by many users, their dream has finally come true!

Finnish will definitely be a very exciting addition to the Incubator. The team already has 2 contributors, and they've started to work on the course straight away!

Who else is excited to learn Finnish? I have already started! My favourite word is aprillipäivä which means April fools:)

Thanks, and congratulations to the team!

It's obviously not true. If the Finnish really did enter, the numbers 1-4 of 24 would become 1-4 of 25. It's still 24.

Nice joke though. I'm assuming you used the Haitian Creole course as a base?

Good joke.

Joking about Finnish around here might get you stabbed, though.

If a language can be named, let it enter the incubator before Finnish. - Winston Churchill.

I'm noticing a trend in these. But at this point (and on Saturday), Finnish seems as likely as Itch.
