    How to say in English? (difficulties with conveying an idea in English)

    Here are two sentences. I doubt which one is more appropriate. Are there any grammatical/lexical mistakes? Thanks for any help in advance :)

    I became interested in efficient and ecological energy generation while studying in Sweden a country where these indices traditionally are very high.

    Both are fine.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
