So I passed my Finnish entrance exam, which means I'll be learning it again after like 10 years. This is as good an excuse as any to top this thread.
Myöhästyneet onnittelut!

Always weird, nice and funny to hear someone picking up my obscure mother tongue. Have fun with the suffixes. Even I cant name then all.

Kiitos paljon!

In my limited experience, the sheer number of grammatical cases isn't a problem for a non-native speaker. The real difficulty is choosing between 2-3 super common cases depending on what exactly you want your verb to convey. :p
