Remembering the Past


We don't usually think about what it's like to grow up or live in a different country. For this week's article, we'll be taking a quick look into Swedish life from the eyes of its rising generation. I talked to several of my Swedish friends about what their experiences were like growing up. (For reference, we focused on an age range of 7-8 years old to be consistent). 

What do you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner?:

I usually eat yougurt and cereal for breakfast! My lunch is provided by the school, and my dad will cook dinner for us! 

What is your house like?:

[The answers I got varied from big houses with yard space to typical apartment style rooms.]

What chores do you have at home?:

"My parents only made me keep my room clean and tidy up after myself." 



What jobs do your parents have?:

I'm not really sure, but I think they just sit in an office somewhere.

What time does school start, and what time do you go home?:

School starts at 8:10 and I go home around 16:00 [*4:00 p.m.].
