Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

This course is an intensive language course and you will learn Swedish by actually using it. Swedish is one of the Scandinavian languages. The course aims to introduce the fundamentals of the grammar and a basic working vocabulary of Swedish, and to give extensive practice in reading, writing, listening and speaking, so that by the end of the course you will be able to communicate at European language level A1. You will learn to interact in both dialogues and written language, and will also get some cultural insight.

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

The course ME33SW joins the course SN1003 Swedish 1 in week 7, when the medical students will be welcomed and integrated in the course. Since the other students will have already worked with the course in the first 6 weeks, it is important that the medical students, who join in later, are prepared to catch up. Help to do so will be given. Please contact the course coordinator well before the course starts in order to discuss this.


Details for second half-session courses, including assessments, may be subject to change until 23 December 2022.
