About the course

This course is aimed for international students who have good proficiency in the Swedish language.

The course deepens your knowledge of Swedish language structure, vocabulary and written skills. The course also includes assignments to improve your listening comprehension and the ability to express your oral and written skills. All these parts are taught parallelly during the course.

The texts and the themes focus on areas like crime and punishment, social media, holidays and working.

Taking the course also entails the opportunity to get to know and study with other international students.

The course includes 48 lessons and you meet the teacher and your group twice a week.

Passed course gives you 7,5 credits and aims at the B2 level on the CEFR-scale.
