Hyvää syntymäpäivää, Suomi! Happy 100th Birthday, Finland!

As Finland 100 events start to kick off, here on Duolingo, many of us lie in anticipation for any announcements surrounding Finnish for English speakers on Duolingo. There have been theories on Duolingo surrounding the Duolingo Plus Owl wearing a spacesuit strangely similar to the Finnish flag, leading many to believe that Duolingo might drop a FI-->EN course soon. Although it has been said that in the future there might be such a course, as of now, there is none. Finnish is one of the most requested languages on Duolingo, and today would be perfect to celebrate the complexities of the Finnish language. A language with 15 cases, very few English cognates, and a whole separate colloquial language with various regional dialects, makes Finnish quite the challenge to learn. Even if Duolingo doesn't drop the course today, we should all celebrate such a beautifully difficult language.

Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää!

For those who want to learn Finnish, there is a whole course on Duolingo already written by a dedicated Finn. Here is the comment that links all of the lessons together: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10579104
