Integrating in Swedish

Finland has two official languages, Finnish and Swedish. The cities in the Capital Region; Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen, are all bilingual with 65 000 registered Swedish speakers. In total 5% of the Finnish population are registered as Swedish speakers.

Integration can mean that you settle in Finland and acquire knowledge and skills that you need in the Finnish society. Some factors that promote integration include learning Finnish or Swedish, finding a job or student position and forming contacts within Finnish society.
