I watched this about a year or so ago but after watching it again just a moment ago I just had to post it. I am so going to show this to my SFI teachers. Haha enjoy 🙂
The other day I was sitting down drinking some wine with her father or “papa” as her and her sister call him. We had been taking about various things such as looking for a job, moving to a new country and then language came up. Like me, her father is from another place and moved to Sweden when he was just a little younger than I am now. He is originally from Morocco however he has traveled to a few other countries before arriving here. With a few friends here he was able to live with them while he got a start in the new society. The friends he had were from his home country and this was both a good and a bad thing. Of course it was good because he had friends to talk with and a place to stay. However this also created a certain type of comfort which some people can get easily get stuck in. Being around people who speak your language allows you to live as you did before, preventing your mind to learn.
