Mastering YKI: Language Learning Journey by Fiona Chow

Mastering YKI: Language Learning Journey by Fiona Chow.
Fiona, where are you from?
I’m from Canada, and I’ve been living in Finland for about 11 years now. I have taken the YKI test in both Swedish (level 5-6) and Finnish (level 3-4), and I passed both.
Why did you decide to do it in Swedish first and then in Finnish?
I live in Helsinki.  When I moved here, I met a lot of Swedish-speaking Finns, and I have many Swedish-speaking friends. Additionally, I was attending a Swedish-speaking church, so as a native English speaker, I learned Swedish quite easily. Moreover, I speak some French being from Canada, and also some German. Hence, Swedish was naturally a lot easier for me. I only took one or two courses to study the language.
