When registering for the course
State the age of your / your children so we can adapt the course to your parenting situation.
The goal is to be able to make yourself understood, and understand others, in different everyday situations at a very basic level.
In the course, you get to talk about life in Sweden, working life, the parenting role and what it is like to be a parent in Sweden. We practice a lot of conversation and pronunciation.
You will read dialogues and shorter texts, practice understanding spoken Swedish and write simpler Swedish. The course is based on the grammatical basics, but the focus is on being able to talk in everyday life - with the teacher in school and preschool, when going to the store and in other situationes you meet every day.
The teaching is in Swedish right from the start.
You are expected to actively participate in the lessons. You need to spend a couple of hours on homework before each lesson.
The course is online on Zoom or similar. You can sit at home and take part in the course - all you need is a computer, iPad or mobile with internet connection, a microphone and a webcam. This means you will be able to see the teacher and fellow students on your screen, and the teacher can also divide the group into smaller groups so that you collaborate with only 2-3 class mates at a time.
Since this is a group for people on parental leave, we of course understand that your baby will need your attention for feeding etc and the teaching takes this into consideration.
You do not need to buy any books for this course, the teacher will hand out digital course material during the course.
