and some people say - ironicly - that Sweden is the 51st state of USA


English is the main language in Sweden



You don't have to be Swedish
to make yourself understood in Stockholm
With a basic knowledge in English
there is no problem

If you ask a Swede if she speaks English
she probably will answer
"yes, a little bit"
And she will speak fluidly

You'll get amazed
They are all good at English
those Swedes

It's simple

Everything sounds better in English

Jag älskar dig - no
I love you - yes

For instance

And we pick up
a lot of English words and
pretend it's ours

because

it sounds better

Tränare - no
Manager - yes

Klädd för framgång - no
Dressed for success - yes

And it keeps going on and on and on

Fildelare - no
Server - yes

And on and on and on

And on and on and on

But hey!

It's not true!

Smorgasbord!

What would the world be
without the
Swedish language?

Hehe, such a sweet write. Reminds me quite a lot of Norway. We are often called the 51st state of USA as well. *snickers*
