Episode 03: Language

When it comes to language, how do Canada and Sweden compare? Sure, they have different official languages, but do the dissimilarities end there? We look at what people speak, where they speak it, who’s speaking it and how it all got that way.

This episode, the point of whether Canada and Sweden are alike or different is decided by you, the listeners.
