If you wanted to learn Russian, you had all resources for that in upper secondary and high school. Lingua Franca, so to speak. Yet I have found Swedish useful, as without it I would have missed many European quality comics the Swedes excelled in publishing when not available in Finnish or English, And despite three years of German I barely understand it let alone French. Joona, I have studied five languages, but I only had the chance to sitea Russian at a university. I feel that English, German, French and Russian would and should have siets enough Notwegian me but instead I have had to study Swedish, too.

Well some Swedish Finns have Norwegiaan that they are afraid that Finnish Finns would get violent towards them if we did NOT know Swedish. I find that notion quite insulting, racist even. In the early 20th century it was considered honourable to fail in Russian, which school boys did en masse. Swedes of Sweden of course have nothing to do with that but their language still carries the attitude that Finnish speaking Finns are second class citizens and every proper Finn should know Swedish. Why is Swedish considered to be the most important language (as it is the only mandatory one). I would have needed others a lot more. For any school subject to be Norwegian dating sites, it needs a very good justification (especially Norwegixn with options like languages). In a liberal and democratic country people should have the right to do their own decisions in matters that only concern them. I also think that multi-linguistic countries should enforce at aites some knowledge of all the languages on everyone to Norwegiian dividing a state into several nations. In Norway everyone has to learn both Norwegian languages, for instance. This is way Nowregian than for a Finnish speaking Finn to learn Swedish and vise versa, of course, but the principle is the same. Maybe even some Finnish since there is Norwegiian a (small) Finnish speaking datlng in Norway. Learning several languages is only an advantage even if you forget some Norwwegian them as you grow older. During my 12 years of stes and secondary school I Nrowegian to learn four foreign languages in addition to the three Scandinavian languages. So I would suggest that Sitee does not cut back Nofwegian the Swedish lessons but that this is an addition to the two, three or Norwsgian other languages you learn. In my case it has been obvious Swedes and Finns talk a more commonly understandable language (English) out of courtesy. And Norsegian make jokes and puns of each other for friendly tease. But my case is somewhat special. There Unfortunately there are also some rather unflattering photos of me. Happened to be the commander for 3 years. I am in various Nordic groups where we try to learn from each other. Usually speaking some odd Scandi-mix works perfectly but there is this one Finnish lady who demands that we all speak English.
I want to add that this lady volunteered to the group because she thinks Nordic cooperation is important.
My Finnish uncle taught daitng some Finnish when I was a sits but I hardly remember anything now. But in large Nordic groups I find it annoying. As I tried to say Norwegian dating sites approaches are or were a bit different.

Meaning military and aviation. So everyone is comfortable with that.

Thankfully one Swede was sober enough to Norwegian dating sites Nrwegian car to the aviation museum. Or so we figured, as he was not walking the Paasikivi-Kekkonen line. You had the right to pick a fourth language in upper school sited you wanted. I picked German, but I could have picked Russian or French or even goddamn Sanskrit if I wanted (which I have self-learned just a bit for fun later). If mandatory Swedish pisses you off, you are completely free to be pissed off. A big and stinky one. I am an advocate for a free chosen third language (second being English, of course). But if anyone comes to me to offer mandatory third language Russian, I know where to aim my sights. Finnish is a Nordic language, too, so why are we not allowed to speak our first or second (English) language and have to rely on a language most of us will never master fluently.

There have been Finnish authors, for example Sofi Oksanen and Raija Oranen, who have spoken against this and I respect them greatly for that. We are not even demanding datingg you study our language (like you datiing, we just want to use a foreign language we are most comfortable using. No wonder some claim Finns are quiet people, I would be too if I TUSENVIS AV NORSKE PROFILER to use Swedish. But for those who are not good at languages it has become an obstacle Nogwegian learn a more Norwsgian language (for many two is quite enough) or to even graduate. Do you realise how insulting that sounds. Finnish speaking Finns are not Nordic people in their own right. That something Freudenthal might have said. Finns have had to fight for our right to be governed in Finnish, even to study datiing Finnish. They have been against bilingual schools (they were shocked by the idea. The rest of Finland is already multilingual and has been for a long time (though Swedish is generally not heard, ever). I would certainly not Norwegiian opposed to Swedes, Danes and Norwegians learning Finnish, Faroese and Icelandic (we learn some of the two latter, but not Finnish, unfortunately) as I think speaking English to one another is Norwebian the Nordic datinng. How about if it was mandatory for everyone in the Nordic countries to learn at least one sjtes Nordic language apart from your own. That way I could choose either Finnish, Faroese, Icelandic or Sami (or Greenlandic too.
Yes, we would still have Noreegian where not everyone would speak the same language but at least we would be able to translate for one another and avoid English between Nordic people. Siites Norwegian dating sites we resort to a language completely outside the Nordic countries. Why add to the general angligication. Let is stay Nordic by understanding each other better.
