What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
You need to have completed Swedish advanced: module 1 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.
You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and explanations, as well as read course documents in English. You will need to be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g. using money, telling the time, using the 24 hour clock, reading timetables). It would also be helpful if you had some knowledge of basic grammar terminology such as: a verb, a noun and conjugation.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Our courses are characterised by spoken interaction and communication. Typical activities include pair work, group work, role plays and games. A range of resources will be used to support your learning including presentations, hand-outs, and audio-visual material.
