Swedes Draw Line After Learning English

A new survey indicates that Swedes are the best in Europe in learning English as a second language.

The poll commissioned by the European Commission found that 89 percent of Swedes can speak English, edging out the people of Malta at 88 percent, and the Dutch at 87 percent.

But Swedes apparently think having one extra language is enough. While the EU poll found that 92 percent of the people of Luxembourg are tri-lingual, only 27 percent of Swedes speak a third language.
