"English – such a beautiful but difficult language."
Translation:Englanti - niin kaunis mutta vaikea kieli.
@Wahha: That depends, pronunciation/spelling in English is one of the hardest to learn due to the large number of homonyms (ruler, can, tie, bear, tear, their/there, I/eye), and of homophones (meet/meat, new/knew, deer/dear, cash/cache) and homographs (bear, tear, quarter, bat, ring) which you hardly find in Finnish.

You've done the list wrong.
Homophones- They're/their/there, I/eye, cash/cache, dear/deer, new/knew. These sound the same but have different spellings.
Homographs- tear (rip)/tear (crying). These have the same spelling but are pronounced differently.
Homonyms- Bear(animal)/bear(carry), can(ability to do)/can(metal container), tie(equivalently victorious)/tie(article of clothing), bat(animal)/bat(something to hit baseballs with), ring(to call on the phone)/ring (jewelry), quarter (money)/quarter (to give shelter). These are pronounced and spelled the same, but their etymologies are unrelated.
Ruler however, is just different senses of the same word. A ruler is someone who makes rules, and a ruler is an object that rules the length of an object.
