— Good level of English (both spoken and written)
— You love borsch!
— Making yourself understood and communicating both your point and your reasoning. Swedes like what they call the “red thread” — or logical progression of thoughts. Extra points if you can do it succinctly.
— Naming five or more dishes that include beetroot, besides borsch.
