Why in English?

Again I heard from a young Somali girl with an academic education and fluent in English. After five years in Sweden with frequent classes in SFI (Swedish for immigrants) she did not learn Swedish and she lost her fluency in English. She is astonished to see that very few people in Sweden speak English. English is a world wide second language and in Somalia surrounded by nations with English as first or second language no one would have problems to understand or make themselves understood.

So I will go back to write my blog in English. I do it most to get some exercises myself. Few people are reading this blog. Might be some of these few will understand and see to it that next time they meet an immigrant they will do their best to communicate, most probably it will be in English.
