Finland is a bilingual country and we have to study 3 languages at school.
Being bilingual country means that we have two official languages: Finnish and Swedish. We also have to learn english in school (so we study Finnish, Swedish and English, plus you can study many other languages if you want to). Funnily we start learning english a lot earlier than Swedish.

We are NOT a part of Scandinavia
Scandinavia actually only includes Sweden, Norway and Denmark. If you include Finland and Iceland with the Scandinavian countries they become the Nordic Countries.
