I have a friend who's lived in Finland for 15 years and still can't
speak a word of Finnish. Whenever I ask him how its going I get some
mumbling about not got the time. Huh? IMO he's just lazy since because a lot
of people in Finland speak english he doesn't have to bother speaking
finnish.

It is easier for a Finnish speaker to learn English, than vice versa,
due to the different kinds of language and grammar (English is a very
analytic language - it uses pronouns, helper verbs, and separate words.
Finnish is very synthetic, meaning different tenses or pronouns get
combined within a single long constructed word).

It is also easier to learn another language when you are younger - Finns
learn English from a young age at school, while few non-Finns learn
Finnish at school. And outside school, Finns meet a lot of English in
daily life, such as internet use - non-Finns only see Finnish in
internet memes about how hard it is to learn Finnish.

Still, I think if you live in a different country it is important to try
to learn the language, even if you never really master it.

Completely agree. I've spent the last 10 years relearning french after
a 20 year gap from school and I know I'll never be fluent in it but I can
get by in conversation and I'm quite good at reading. If you make the effort
you get the results.
