What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
You need to have completed Swedish 2 module 3 or equivalent. Students should be able to hold a conversation about everyday situations to an intermediate standard, read everyday instructions and understand news reports in simple, everyday Swedish. They should also have a good knowledge of present, simple past and future tenses, as well as with the present perfect and pluperfect tenses.
