Also, not many have higher education and this is absolutely not a problem! The seller in the supermarket is no less respected than the professor of mathematics. If the child does not seek to learn, in any case he will find a place and work on the forces.
My emigre life proceeds peacefully and happily. but I would like to support the topic about Finland. Therefore, briefly describe what I can.
We live in Central Finland (Keski-Suomi).
I spent the first year at home. I got used to it, got friends, quietly independently (and almost without result) taught the language, devoting time to myself and my housekeeping. Along the way, he raked out the worst rubble of old junk in our old house, inspired beauty and was implanted in every way with life. I did not attend language courses in the first year. However, I worked in the summer of 3 months in kirpputori (analogue of the second-hand shop from the church, with it there was a cafe). These 3 months gave me more than a tuition at home and courses combined.
Since August I have been attending language courses. So far, the successes are average. I’m not going to work yet, I have at least another six months of courses. And there I most likely will go to study. If I do not go – I have not decided yet what to do, there are lots of options.
That’s how to describe a Finnish village or something proudly called a city? In the city there will be at best 3 grocery stores, 1 large supermarket with soap-rylit goods and cheap T-shirts. There will also be a hairdresser (3-4 pieces for two hundred residents), also a couple of cafes, a bank, a big pathos city hall, libraries, a school, three birches with 2 benches (“park”), some kind of lake, a beautiful wooden church and .. Well, that’s all, actually. I do not exaggerate, I just briefly describe the town for 3-10 thousand inhabitants.
What is a Finnish village? This is a dozen scattered houses in the forest, a long-closed shop (“center”), pieces of asphalt main road (or general priming), a long-closed school, a public beach and a stunningly beautiful nature (right everywhere). Quietly, quietly. Something like this.
On the one hand, I feel sorry for them. And on the other – what were they thinking about? Both are of solid age, really did not think what life would be like here? In general, everyone decides for himself. But you need to consider even the bus schedule in the place where you move.
How did I decide this question? Simply and easily. as I said, my neighbors are close, two families of our age, two families of my parents’ age, some older. There is also a younger one. We communicate very actively, we go to visit, call up and exchange gifts. Also my husband and I go in for sports and in our sports clubs we have our friends. Plus, we are friends with my husband’s colleagues, and thanks to my work and volunteering in the Red Cross, I already have my own friends-friends, with whom I can spend my time independently of my husband. Plus, even in Ukraine, we approached seriously the issue of my leisure. Therefore, I learned to drive a car, with the help of my husband finished the course, I got the right. Over time, we bought a small car and I generally stopped depending on my husband in matters of movement or communication. Undoubtedly, this greatly helped to survive the possible stress of emigration.
The first time I did not get to the courses, because the group was stuffed to the eyeballs. They offered places in other courses, but it was very far to go, we had to give up. lost a whole year. For the second time I still got into the group, although I have to spend more than 2 hours a day driving. Classes are daily for 5 hours except for weekends. We go on excursions, we celebrate various events, we go camping, we are very friendly. In addition, the teacher has the opportunity to devote time and attention to absolutely everyone. I believe that I was lucky. I would not live in a big city. To us the people from the big city were transferred when 2 places were vacated – they study for 2 months longer and their language level is half below ours. So living in the outback has pluses.
Although the situation with the courses on the other hand is tense. Programs are being reduced, it is very difficult for the villagers to physically get and study, however it is free and the quality of education is excellent. We have a kitchen, a class is well equipped, books and all the materials down to notebooks and pencils for free, we do 1 time per week in a computer class. That’s why I really like it. In our group, after the first stage in Finnish, even those who taught the alphabet at the first lessons began to speak. Everyone likes it, everyone is happy.
The Finnish language is complicated. I have a good command of English and in everyday situations I have never had any difficulties. But Finnish is something! The language is really complicated. but if you are not lazy and force yourself to learn – certain results can be achieved.
So much wanted to write and tell, and something all at once and forgot how to get to the computer.
Gays? Yes, there are same-sex marriages in Finland, they are officially registered as a partnership and even crowned in the church. Children they themselves give birth (most often) or adopt. Than it is bad? nothing wrong I do not see. The same people as all of us, polite, friendly. There is no propaganda here. On the contrary, rather here is anti-gay propaganda and everywhere the traditional family values are extolled. And if people with these looks – they simply will not be hunted and climbed into their bedroom. So all the talk about gay propaganda – complete nonsense. In Ukraine, I had a large number of non-traditional friends. And in Finland, you will not find them here in the daytime with fire, it’s ridiculous: one unhappy gay is a tourist attraction to the neighboring 5 villages (like, look, we have our own gay gay!). And there is much less talk about this than on Russian or Ukrainian TV. So who else has propaganda? : lol:
So about the selection and picking up of children – another nonsense.
Is the husband now working in the same industry or in another? A father in law like? And the photos will be? “Center” is as rustic as it looks, I think you did not show it.
There was a nice little town nearby, literally in 15 minutes drive, villages more crowded, and even less. But these are short distances only for car owners. I knew that I could not drive a car, that is, I would be attached to MCH. What if he gets sick, and can not take me where I’m going, on foot to the next village? So I decided that such settlements are not for me. I need the most necessary things – a store, a pharmacy, a doctor were within walking distance, or the availability of public transport. But we all have different characters, customs. For me it turned out to be an insurmountable problem.
to disappear? Thanks to my clever husband, who immediately explained to me the prospects of life in the village and insisted on driving in Ukraine.
