Should Sweden recognize English as the second official language?Posted by: Morgy
Immigrants from English-speaking countries who do not speak the language are generally at a serious economic disadvantage. It's much more difficult to get and hold a job or find a place to live. If a vast majority (90%) of Sweden's population speaks satisfying to outstanding English, then why make it hard for English-speakers to find a job or live in Sweden?
Yes, it should be the second official language
No, Swedish should be the only official language
Even though practically every swede i've met speak English at a very high level it is to 99,99% a secondary language that you learn in school. In difference to some of Sweden's minority languages English is not spoken in any groups of society as a first language. English is important for Sweden's economy since it is used when trading with other countries and I agree with that it is very good to learn, but I do not associate English with my home country.
