Nikolas Kapali, 32, is from Nepal and now lives in Vantaa. When he moved to Finland for a relationship, he did not speak any Finnish. All he knew about Finland was where it is, and little about the culture and climate.
“I started studying Finnish after I moved here. At first, the language did not seem that important, since my wife’s family and our circle all spoke English with me.
