Hjärtligt välkommen!
Swedish is the native language of about 10 million people. It is the official language of Sweden and also one of the two official languages of Finland. Swedish is a descendant of Old Norse and is closely related to Danish and Norwegian. Swedish is characterized by its melodic accent and distinctive vowel system.


We offer Swedish courses from level A1 to B2.2 following the CEFR.

Not every course may be offered every semester.
Please determine your course level by taking our placement test.

Intensive courses (course levels may vary) take place during the semester break in spring and fall.

The intensive courses take place over a shorter period of time, but have more training units per week than the courses during the semester. The number of ECTS and the workload is therefore the same as for the semester-long courses.

Current dates and registration deadlines can be found on our homepage.

A - Nybörjare
isolerade kunskapsöar, motivationssteg, standardiserade situationer, kommunikation är det viktiga, ordförrådet är det intressanta, språket styr

B - Självständig
B1: man styr språket, tröskelnivå, grammatik och register smyger sig in, det mesta är gemensamt
B2: specialisering, utvidgning/breddning, kulturell medvetenhet, inte "riktigt svenskt"

C - Avancerad
kan leda/presentera/bidra, även utanför sitt område, klarar nya situationer, kan improvisera
