Any Swedes or Sweden Enthusiasts
So I'm an 9th grade student, and I have to write a persuasive essay... I was thinking about writing one about convincing the reader to move to Sweden. I've heard nothing but good things from that country. If you're from Sweden do you think I should write about this? Do you have any good reasons?
Positive: Wealthy, not much crime, not many problems at all really.
Negative: Most people don't like the climate and/or the darkness. Many also find it tough to adapt to the social climate if they are from a "more social" culture.
Positive OR negative: High taxes, very socialistic compared to other western nations. Very sparsely populated.
I fail to see the negatives ;-).
No, of course: If you don't like the climate and long winters, and if the social rules are not your cup of tea and you need a more extrovert style (which certainly is a little bit exaggerated but has a true core) then the north in general is not for you.
But I have to admit that I would sort your "negative" points under "positive or negative" also. I know at least one person who prefers it this way.
