Courses

Swedish Language for staff – Swelang A1

The A1 course is for beginners in the Swedish language. It is a course where we cover the basics of Swedish: grammar, vocabulary, and simple communication. Participants will learn grammar and a vocabulary with useful phrases so that they can use Swedish even outside the classroom. Communication and interaction are the focus, both in writing and orally. We use the textbook 'Rivstart A1+A2' and work with the first half of the book, which covers everyday themes. The instruction is conducted in English.


Swedish Language for staff – Swelang A2

The A2 course is a continuation of the A1 course in the Swedish language. Participants have learned the basics of the language regarding grammar and some vocabulary. In this course, participants will learn more advanced and specialized grammar. Regarding vocabulary, the focus in this course is also on useful phrases so that they can use Swedish outside the classroom. Communication and interaction take an even greater role, and the course is mostly focused on oral communication. We use the textbook 'Rivstart A1+A2' and work with the second half of the book, which covers everyday themes. The instruction is conducted in both English and Swedish.


Swedish Language for staff - Swelang B1/B2, part 1 and 2

The B1/B2 courses are conducted in Swedish, although English can be used to explain individual words. It covers level B1 and the first part of B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The course is based on oral interaction, and the content is more focused on professional life and society than before, but we also draw from more everyday subject areas. In the course, we use 'Rivstart B1+B2' as a foundation but also incorporate other materials such as newspaper texts, TV programs, advertisements, and music. During the course, we work on creating simple presentations related to the subject areas or research fields that participants are involved in.


Swedish Language for staff - Swelang B2/C1, part 1 and 2

The B2/C1 courses are conducted in Swedish, although English can be used to explain individual words. The courses cover the later level of B2 and the entire C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In the course, writing is emphasized more than before, allowing for exploration of both formal and everyday language. We use 'Rivstart B2+C1' as a basis, along with literary texts by Swedish authors, dialogues, newspaper articles, and various types of professional texts. Additionally, we incorporate TV programs, music, and advertisements related to different subject areas. The subject areas are generally more complex than in previous courses, which is reflected in both oral and written assignments.
