In Finland almost everybody speaks english, so it is not a problem at all to communicate with the people. But it is still good and interesting to learn at least basic phrases in the local language.

Final comments
Travel a lot. Ferries to Stockholm and Tallinn are really cheap. Also go to St.Petersburg. There is a travel agency just for students which offers reasonable trips there, and they even arrange the visa things. Enjoy the first of May (Vappu), the national student's day.
