Get the reading and understanding parts nailed down first is my advice. From there you can work to actually speaking the language and in the meantime just scrape by with English.

And I don't really get how moving in at winter is a bad thing. This is not Great Britain, we build our houses to bear all seasons. Dress properly while going outside and in the odd case you're actually freezing inside take it up with the landlord, because you really shouldn't. A little snow doesn't mess up the traffic either, at least much. Honestly, Finland at winter is pretty much like Finland at summer, sans some eye candy.
