With English education already in lower school and TV programs that are not dubbed, Swedes have developed excellent English skills, according to a study by the world's largest private educational company.
The EF English Proficiency Index said Sweden is the world's top English-speaking country for people who speak English as a second language. Last year the Scandinavian country came in at number four.
Denmark was ranked number two, followed by the Netherlands, Finland and Norway.
The EF English Proficiency Index tested nearly 2 million people in 54 countries for their skills with English as a second language.
Founded in 1965, Stockholm-based Education First, EF, is the world's largest private educational company.
