"Couldn't she teach English in Sweden? Athens is a major college town. Isn't there some kinda market for her Swedish skills there? Somewhere in America there must be a way to turn her foreign language skills into cash." - wolverine


Not much call for Swedish. The only people who speak Swedish are people in Sweden, and there aren't all that many of them, and my baby sister told me that pretty much everybody in Sweden speaks English - only they don't like to - they prefer speaking Swedish.

It's not like Spanish where there are 10 Bazillion of them. Pretty much all of Latin America (except Brazil) speak Spanish. Learning Spanish is a smart thing to do. Hell you can use your Spanish if you live in South Florida or southern California. When we were in Orlando, Florida about a year ago we heard people speaking Spanish all over the place. There are parts of Orlando where that's all they speak.
