    bilingual is not a big deal at all, trilingual is where you start deserving respect imo. We learn english from age 10 here, and i also speak a bit of french and decent german but with a little bit of effort it's really not a big deal

    what about Russian and English?
    2020-12-25 14:31
    9 replies
    No clue about those ratios. I am Swedish so I don't really know. #100 said Russian is an option in the east of Finland if you want. And of course English is also mandatory in school, don't you learn English in French schools? Swedish is an official language of Finland because from the dawn of Nordic civilization up until 1809 Finland was part of Sweden, and we're very close to Finland. We sent volunteer armies and many supplies over there in 1917 to help with their liberation from Russia. A lot of Swedes also fought in the Finnish Winter War during World War 2. In Finnish schools they learn English, Finnish and Swedish, and in Swedish schools we learn English, Swedish and a third language that we get to pick, usually either Spanish, French or German. So at least to some extent, anyone who passed through Finnish or Swedish school is trilingual at minimum, and I wouldn't be surprised if Finnish schools also have Fre/Spa/Ger education as well.

    Not as long as they were Swedish. They've been under Swedish control for at least 600 years, probably longer considering there never was a Finnish "nation" before Finland was part of Sweden. It just kind of started out as Sweden (though I should mention the Finnish PEOPLE have existed for a long time, well before the Nordic nations were even a thing). Finland was Russian between 1809 and 1917, and during that time Finnish people still had a close connection to Swedish people. There's a lot of Russian influence, but Sweden is closer. EDIT: I should also note that Russia tried to "Russify" Finland in the late 1800s and early 1900s, but failed. A motto of a Finnish independence movement was: "Swedes we are no more Russians we cannot become therefore Finns we must be." Clever.

    There's a difference between "Finlandssvenskar" - Finnish people with Swedish as their mother tongue, of which there are 290 000 - and people fluent in Swedish. I just found this article (Swedish): sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spr%C3%A5k_i_Finla.. Here it's said 41% of the Finnish population older than 15 speaks Swedish.

    Spanish, French, German are three languages that are good to know since a large part of the world speaks them. Spanish and French-speaking countries make up most of Africa and South America, and while German isn't as widely spoken worldwide, a lot of European countries speak some German and/or are related to German, so it helps to know some of it. As a Swede, learning German was fairly easy since it's related and a lot of words are similar. Goes both ways, if you speak German you might be able to catch the rough meaning of some Swedish sentences and be able to have some sort of half-understanding of certain words and phrases. Further, knowing Spanish, French and/or German helps when learning other languages. As I said, learning Scandinavian languages is helped by knowing German. Learning pretty much any latin language is helped by knowing Spanish or French (I learned a bit of Italian and I can half-understand some Spanish and Portuguese because of it, for example).

    If your criteria for earnt respect is to be able to speak another language, you're aiming very low. It's interesting to me that americans think of it as impressive to be able to speak another language. We're taught english from a young age (8 or 9 in Denmark) and we have english classes for up to 10 years. If you're not able to speak the language you've been learning for 10 years fluently then you almost certainly have a mental disability. Furthermore we're taught a third language from the age of 14, for up to 6 years. Learning a language is not a difficulty matter, it simply takes time, it's not magic.

    for a lot of americans it's impressive for 2 reasons 1. American schools don't require language education, and colleges only require 2 years of language classes 2. not many people speak other languages outside of big cities, so it's impressive to keep being able to speak it well without having a lot of people to train with

    how big the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese?
    2020-12-25 16:01
    2 replies
    Cantonese is hard compared to Mandarin. Mandarin uses 4 tones whereas Cantonese uses upto 9 tones. Different dialect means different meaning. Sometimes Mandarin speaker can't understand Cantonese speaker because of that and vice versa. Both are nearly written with the same base characters. If someone tells you that they can speak Chinese, they usually refer to Mandarin. Mandarin is simplified Chinese whereas Cantonese is traditional chinese. If you want to dive deeper into Chinese culture, I would recommend you to learn Cantonese even though it is tough, but if you just want to communicate with other chinese fellows/work in chinese comapny, learn Mandarin.

    no it's the disadvantage when you're born in america: the gap between high school and uni is way higher (we learn a lot of stuff in 12th grade Europe that they learn in 2nd year uni in US for exemple) and most of them are not bilingual, since euro kids have some of their media in english.
