Hi there.
I am searching for an utbildning so i can learn here in Sweden , but do not know what to choose , anyone can help me ?
I have no such a big knowledge about the utbildning in Sweden , so i have a Little difficulties to choose one , but i am willing to learn something and work in this country till at least my kids finish their school then their University if they want to continue their study , buy the problem is that i am 42 years old and have never worked in Sweden because i was working in my country for many years and i was just visiting my family every 3 months .
So now i came here to live with them forever , and i quit my job in my homeland , finished my Sas here in Sweden and do not want to go to Svenska 1 , so anyone can help me by giving me ideas of which utbildning can be good for me ( can not work as a truck´s driver because i have problem in my left Eye , and i can not find myself working with the old people ( not my style) .
It will be better if you please send me a list of the utbildning that a man can learn here in Sweden in my age.
I tried svetsare , bil mekaniker , and did not like it , and i hate also the kitchens sector.

I will appreciate it very much if you help me with this issue.
I hope that a door will open for me here in this country so i can feel more happy to live in it and to be useful .
