;-) Yes, I couldn't stop myself... Everyone has to do English in school, and speakers of Finnish and Swedish have to study each other's language. According to the latest data I saw some 70% percent do a third foreign language. 40% do German, 20% French. 10% for other languages, Latin has been coming strongly during the last years.
