Luis on Finnish

On the plus side, Luis reaffirmed that the next African language is Zulu :D

I think the jokes Luis is making is a good sign...

The joke is bad, but at least it means he's aware of the situation.

I don't know..This joke made me think that maybe finnish will be added soon. I mean, In the previous Ama he was only saying..yeah we may add it sooner or later..now he made more than a joke about finnish being added...I think it's a good sign. Plus this year in Finland they'll celebrate 100 years of indipendency

I think it was in poor taste. But thanks for posting this.

Not very professional in my view. I know he has to be down to Earth, but I'm confused.

Same. I mean one joke I'd get, but twice? It should be followed by some answer. Especially on the second question.

I agree, it seems like Luis doesn't remember that he isn't "one of us" but instead the guy with all the power to make the decisions.

Maybe he wants us to think he's one of us, but it doesn't work like this.

It could be that too. He needs a social media brand manager by his side.

Yay! I'm interested in Zulu but I think Africaans is more requested, is it not?

I don't know, but I want Zulu more than Afrikaans. Zulu is more African than Afrikaans anyways.

It's just great to get more African languages on here and Zulu is a pretty important language in South Africa.

Afrikaans is just as African as Zulu.

Afrikaans is an offshoot of a European language spoken in Africa. Zulu is a language that's part of a language family native to Africa. They're both normal languages spoken in Africa, but Zulu is quite a bit more African than Afrikaans.
