I'm from Sweden. We are not that many people who speak Swedish in the world. So when refugees come to Sweden of course they are not going to speak and write the language.
If you are born and raised in Swede but still can't write or read..that's a different story.
Yes, it is the same thing.
They couldn't read or write any language.

But personally I don't even know even a single person who cannot read. If you speak English, it should be really easy to learn how to read.

Have you ever met someone who can't read? to what extent? I'm just curious.
Ask a bank teller how many people simply put X on the back of their checks......can't even sign their name!
