I was just surprised that his English was so bad when coming over, knowing how the education system in Finland generally teaches Swedish and English at an early age. It's not like when Kurri had to watch Happy Days just to learn English, or Tikkanen had to - well - okay he's still learning from what I see online, but either way it was odd to me.


that's interesting.. I knew English was mandatory in Swedish schools.. same as Netherlands.. but didn't know about Finland.. makes sense.. no one else speaks Finnish outside of Finland.. same as the Dutch, Swedes.. etc,,

According to this.. learning a foreign language has been mandatory.. starting in grade 3 (currently grade 1).. with the vast majority selecting English.. question is.. what happened to Puljujarvi? If the foreign language wasn't English.. then what is it?.. French? Spanish? Bizarre. Like I said.. he's an enigma.

Quote:

Children learn foreign languages best in their early age: there is a so-called sensitive period for learning different languages during the first years of life. According to different scientific studies this sensitive period lasts from the birth to 6-8 years and starts to diminish around the age of 12 years. This fact has been the starting point for the current language program reform in Finland.

Finland has a long history of teaching several languages. To begin with, in Finland there are two official languages: Finnish and Swedish. Finnish is the language of the majority: about 90% of the population speak Finnish as their mother tongue. Swedish is the native language for about 5% of the population. All children in Finland study both official languages – Finnish and Swedish – at school.

Finnish is a very rare language. It belongs to the Finno-Uralic language family (related to languages like Estonian, Sami, Hungarian and Nenets) and is not spoken outside of Finland. It is fair to say that for the vast majority of citizens of Finland, it is vital to learn foreign languages.

Finland has been acknowledged for its rich language program for years. In addition to Finnish and Swedish, all pupils study at least one foreign language, most commonly English. The first foreign language has previously started on the third grade. Depending on the school and city, one has also been able to choose additional foreign languages on the fourth and / or on the eighth grade. The languages available vary in different cities and municipalities, but e.g. German, French, Russian, Spanish and Chinese / Mandarin can be language options. There are even more options to study foreign languages in Finnish high schools. It is not uncommon for Finnish high school graduates to have studied five or more different languages.

For a long time Finland has emphasized the fluent learning of the mother tongue (Finnish or Swedish) during the first school years and started the first foreign language only on the third grade. From this year on, the plan has changed and Finnish first graders start learning first foreign language on the second semester of the first grade.
