Full course description

There are unfortunately no more spots available for self-learning studies.

Learning Swedish offers self-learning material for beginners. The site is a pilot project during 2022 and will be closed down at the end of this year. 


Learning Swedish is only open for

  • international students with good knowledge in English who are going to study at a university in Sweden this autumn,
  • Swedish language students at universities outside Sweden with good knowledge in English. 

The course teaches 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.
