Undergraduate Scandinavian Language 2017-2018

SN1003: SWEDISH 1

15 credits

Level 1

First Sub Session

Sweden is the largest Scandinavian country and is known for e.g. technology (from dynamite to Skype), culture (from vikings to Abba and Stieg Larsson), tourism (from snowy mountains to red cottages) and politics and society (from UN to corporate social responsibility).

By learning Swedish you acquire a new language, but maybe also a new way of thinking, and an interesting twist to your CV.

Teaching in this course is interactive and you will learn to communicate in a friendly environment by practising to listen, speak, read and write (and why not sing?) and also get some cultural insight.

SN1503: SWEDISH 2

15 credits

Level 1

Second Sub Session

Building on Swedish I, you will continue to learn to speak, listen, read and write in Swedish. We will now use a more complex language - for instance we will use more adjectives to describe things, and start using subclauses. By extending your vocabulary as well as working with grammar, by the end of the course you should be able to communicate on European language level A2.

As before, teaching is interactive with a lot of speaking practice in class and in the end of the course you are invited to actively take part of our midsummer cultural tutorial.

SN2003: SWEDISH 3

15 credits

Level 2

First Sub Session

The course will refine and build on the first year of study, but we will start using the language a lot more and you will be exposed to a lot more language. A large part of the course will deal with expanding your vocabulary and increase your confidence and ability to use the language.  The course book uses normal everyday language and is structured around a variety of topics which will enhance your ability to express yourself in an increasing number of situations and to understand new words from the context.

SN2503: SWEDISH 4

15 credits

Level 2

Second Sub Session

This course follows on Swedish 3.  In addition to building vocabulary and confidence, you will learn to use the passive mood as well as practise classic Swedish dilemmas, such as “tycker”, “tänker”, “tror” and “känner”.  You will also read a book in Swedish and write a book review.
