Target group

This is a beginners course in Swedish for you who does not know any Swedish at all. This course has guaranteed start.

Aim of the course

This is the first part of a Swedish A1 course for completing the level A1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference. When you have completed this level you can introduce yourself and ask others about their name and where they live. You can understand and use simple words and phrases concerning your needs or everyday situations. You can communicate with someone who speaks slowly and clearly.


The A1 level in the summer consists of two courses: A1 part 1 (2 weeks) and A1 part 2 (2 weeks). The "part 2"-course starts directly after this course.

In A1 part 1 you will learn:

  • simple words and phrases
  • to talk about yourself
  • to ask simple questions and understand simple answers
  • basic grammar
  • to talk and write in Swedish about simple subjects
  • about Swedish culture and society

Course structure

The teaching is in Swedish from the beginning and the main focus is on oral communication. We use practical daily life situations for practicing - in pairs or in small groups. We work a lot with listening comprehension and conversation skills, where grammar is intergrated.

You are expected to take an active part in the lessons and your personal points of view are a valuable contribution to how the course is conducted. To benefit from the course you should plan a couple of hours of homework per week.

OPTIONAL: Extended course

In addition to your morning course, you can choose to have additional hours to practise your individual needs in grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, professional language etc. These hours are just you and your teacher.
Choose among:

  • 12 individual study hours* (+8.925 SEK).
  • Occasional study hours* (+750 SEK/study hour*)
* 1 study hour = 45 minutes
The extended course is conducted alongside your morning course on Mondays, Wednesdays and/or Thursdays at 13:30-15:00.
Please write the amount of extra hours you wish to do in the message field when booking the course.
