When you live in Turku you can notice that generally people speak English on a really high level. Although you can easily survive here without Finnish or Swedish, I still believe that it’s good to learn the language of the country you live in. That’s why I decided to learn Finnish.
Cultural difference awareness is becoming increasingly crucial in the context of globalization. To my view of thinking, the more we know about Finnish culture, the better we understand and discover their secrets for success.
