Swedish group class with maximum 5 students

We wanted to start small group courses where we can meet each student’s individual needs and goals but still add the dynamics of learning in a group. So we created what we think is a lagom intense course with a lagom number of students. In the Summer of 2021, we will start Swedish beginner group courses with lessons once a week, or twice a week. 

Once a week

1 x 90 minutes lesson every week for a total of 20 weeks. The course covers chapters 1-5 in the textbook Rivstart A1+A2.

Twice a week

2 x 90 minutes every week for a total of 10 weeks. The course covers chapters 1-5 in the Rivstart A1+A2 textbook.   

Target level & Course objectives

The target level for our beginner course is Level A1, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

After completing the course you should master the basics of the Swedish language so that you can make yourself
understood and understand others in everyday situations, for example when greeting
someone, ordering something, and providing or asking for simple information. 

Content & course material

During the course, you will learn, among other things, to greet, introduce yourself, talk about yourself (family, leisure, studies, work, etc.) and make purchases. We practice very natural pronunciation. You get to read simple dialogues and shorter texts and practice understanding spoken Swedish. You learn the grammatical basics, such as word order, tenses, noun and adjective inflections, pronouns, and prepositions.
