Full course description

Welcome to the new Learning Swedish! Now with an updated and improved learning experience!

Learning Swedish offers self-learning material for beginners. The course is a pilot project and will be tested during 2022.

The course is intended for international students with good knowledge in English who are studying or planning to study at universities in Sweden and students at universities abroad that are using Learning Swedish in their courses. 

The course will teach participants basic spoken and written Swedish, and gives a head start on Swedish language, culture and society. Learning Swedish has a fast progression and participants will learn vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar through a series of exercises and quizzes. Learning Swedish gives access to comprehensive self-study materials such as study texts, audio files and a phrase dictionary with video clips. Participants study at their own pace and can repeat exercises and quizzes as they wish.  All explanations in the beginning of the course are in English.

Learning Swedish can also be used in teacher-led courses, so-called blended learning. 

Through Learning Swedish you can reach language proficiency level A1/A2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This is primarily applicable in a teacher-led context where you usually have the possibility to speak and write more freely.

The course works equally well on your computer and on your mobile phone, which offers more flexibility.

The course is free of charge but has a limited number of places available. 

If you are a Swedish language teacher and want to learn more about the course, don't hesitate to contact us.

Learning Swedish is a joint project between the Swedish Institute (SI), a Swedish public agency, and universities in Sweden and abroad.
