Why is it so rare for people to learn Swedish?
I know there's no scarcity of available languages to learn, but I wonder why Swedish is so rare. I understand that most Swedes speak very good English, but I thought it wasn't considered a national language.
So why is it that people so rarely learn this language? And are other similar languages chosen? Dutch, German, Finish, etc...
I'm already in love with the language and the people/culture. But this is very curious to me. What do you all think.
