As you may (or may not) know, I’m in my third year of Hungarian. If I want, there are still two more years to go. One requisite for the second (fifth) year is to study the basics of another Finno-Ugric language – the options being Finnish, Estonian and Sami. Call me crazy, but I’m seriously considering taking a beginner’s course in Finnish. About half of the students doing Russian in my class at uni were actually Russian, and I though they were sort of cheating (studying their own mother tongue as a foreign language in order to get good grades), well… now I’m thinking about doing the same, simply because it would save me a lot of time and energy.
