By studying Swedish Level 1, you will be able to communicate in very basic everyday-life situations, including greetings, daily activities, finding your way, telling the time and date, making simple purchases, ordering a meal, etc, be able to understand very simple oral and written texts and ascertain specific information on simple topics and have developed an insight into Swedish-speaking life, culture and society.

Student feedback: We talk about the culture of the country, not just the language. Also, the atmosphere is very relaxed and it feels everyone can try to speak even if they make a mistake - a very non-judgmental atmosphere! I love it! - anon
