Greetings from 100-year old Finland!

Terve!

Greetings from Finland! The lovely Maiden of Finland celebrates today 100 years of independence. To stay true to the international spirit of Duolingo, here she is as interpreted by a Japanese artist.

Here are some video messages from all over the globe. Including a hello from Tom Hanks, who has clearly never heard of pesäpallo! :P

What would YOU give The Finn Maiden as a birthday present? :)

I would give the Finn Maiden a Duolingo course teaching her language, for her birthday!

Sounds lovely! Well, actually there should be several courses, since the Maiden is multilingual: Finnish, Northern Sami, Inari Sami, Skolt Sami, Finnish Sign Language, Karelian and Romani. Swedish, of course, is already available. :)

I agree. That would be amazing!

Any news about the course? I mean, if this wasn't a special enough event to add the most requested language, I don't know what we need to do to get a course. Wait another 100 years?

Haha well done Finland! Estonia's 100th anniversary is coming up soon! Congrats to our brothers in Findland!

Just a few more months and it will be my turn to congratulate! Oh, and thanks for the balloon! :)
