Palestinian immigrant Ali Aladdin who has previously lived in both Sweden and Germany, has this to say about language:
"six months, that's what it took me to learn German, the Germans are patient.
The Swedes, they are very open - they will help and correct you if you make a mistake
I get so tired talking with the Danes. Either they say they don't understand a word or they just laugh at you so you get scared away from trying..."
Are we having fun yet!
