Study abroad: Svenska som främmande språk - nivå 1-8

This course package is designed for students seeking a unique Scandinavian study abroad experience and who are interested in acquiring and developing a Swedish language skill. 

Learning Swedish

The Swedish beginners language course has a rapid progression and by the end of the first semester (level 4), you will be able to understand radio and television programmes on current affairs or topics of personal interest. 

By the end of the whole course, you will be able to 

understand extended speech and lectures and follow even complex lines of argument provided the topic is reasonably familiar 

understand television programmes and films without too much effort

read articles and reports concerned with contemporary problems in which the writers present attitudes or viewpoints

interact with native Swedes with a degree of fluency and spontaneity and take an active part in discussions, accounting for and sustaining your views

present clear, detailed descriptions of complex subjects and employ various styles of writing, selecting a style appropriate to the reader in mind.

To achieve this, the course is thematically organised and communicative activities are an integral part of each lesson. 

The course package includes two semesters of full-time studies (60 ECTS). To be eligible for the second semester, you must pass level 4 during the first semester. At the end of successfully completed studies the student will receive a transcript and certificate. For students currently studying a degree, the home university will need to approve whether the ECTS credits from the course package can be transferred to the current degree programme. A grade of Pass on the whole course SFSH60 meets the requirement of Swedish proficiency for admission to Swedish higher education.
