Heh, mitt modersmål är också svenska.
Living my ex-pat life I enjoy the opportunity to use both of my mother tongues Finnish and Swedish whenever possible in my first reply to a fellow Finn, or a Swede. I miss Finland and both languages and have usually no possibilities to use any of them in my daily life.
I am fully bilingual, officially also Swedish speaking like you as per information at National Population Registration Centre of Finland (Befolkningsregistercentralen
) will tell. Why I posted something in Finnish instead of Swedish is that as you know, the majority of our bilingual country are Finnish speakers so it's usually a safe bet
I don't like Lapin Kulta. For me, the lager must be Koff or Karhu.
Friendship request accepted, with pleasure!
