Educated in English is even more helpful, not just speaking English.
Living in Finland, kids will pick up Finnish anyway.
Beta wrote:Dear all,
I did not know by saying English is more useful it sounds so weird, even 'idiot' to onkko . I was using that as a precondition to limit the scope of discussion, not going into mobility, jobs, family background etc. But it turned out being more confusing than simplifying the discussion. sorry for that.
So this is how I came up with such thoughts about language.
- I have not been able to imagine to stay in Finland forever due to job security (at least for foreigners), the pension I paid etc.
- For kids brought up in an international environment, I guess they are more possibly going to try other parts of the world than their parents.
- Looking at the opportunity within global organizations, even in Finland, I am convinced that English is one of the keys. Educated in English is even more helpful, not just speaking English. Though education in English is not necessarily better than Finnish education.
- Living in Finland, kids will pick up Finnish anyway. It is their English that needs more help, without ignoring the importance of Finnish.
I guess these sound more weird? I will be very happy if you help me to correct them, with any kind of comments.
