Hard language

I have witnessed many times conversation about different languages. First thing what comes up is that Finnish is a very difficult language to learn. Almost every exchange student comes to Finland to learn English and excuse not to learn Finnish is that it is too difficult. The fame of the difficult language prevents people to learn Finnish. Reasons for this are that words do not resemble any words of any other language they have studied before and the extremely long words. Irish polyglot Benny wrote a post that there are no such thing as a too hard language to learn. I wish that exchange students could get a great attitude to learn a new language like he has.
