How We Teach
Long gone are the days with generic, boring textbooks and standard vocabulary for learning Swedish. Language and communication are highly individual and we want to help you express your personality, strengths and professional competence. As a professional, you need the vocabulary that will help you succeed both at work and at home. Our courses are tailor-made for your profession and learning style and provide the tools for you to learn Swedish as quickly as possible.
You will learn the basic vocabulary and grammar through our interactive exercises. We start speaking Swedish from lesson one, constructing more advanced sentences as we go along. For those of you who already know the conversational basics, we fine tune your written communication and help you find just the right tone and appropriate level of language to match your industry, role and setting. To make sure that you have the best possible start in Sweden we also provide you with the keys to navigating in the Swedish business culture. Learning Swedish allows you to see the hidden clues and the unspoken secrets of how Swedish business culture really works. We will explain the customs, habits and teach you how to use the idioms to your advantage.
The number of classes needed, and their content will vary depending on your current proficiency, and where you would want it to be in future. We welcome beginners as well as more advanced learners, to our courses. Ultimately our aim is to help you integrate faster in the Swedish society and culture – we believe that good knowledge of the Swedish language will be immensely helpful in your new life in Sweden!
Swedish for Professionals Learning model
’A unique language programme, tailored to professionals.’
We believe in a method of blended learning, where inspiring sessions learning Swedish with our language coaches are mixed with interactive exercises on our digital online platform. The combination enables you to practice your pronunciation and speech with your coach and also make use of time between classes to sharpen your grammatical skills. The learning process is supported through continuous follow-up and communication between you and your language coach.
Your language coach is a native Swedish speaker with extensive experience from international environments and a passion for people and language. Most often your language coach will even have experience from your industry and of course a great command of the English language. Most of the coaches also speak a third, fourth or fifth language!
Our digital tools
Textbooks are not enough. That’s why we have developed our own digital learning material making it possible for you to learn Swedish in your own time, thereby extending the learning experience outside the walls of the classroom.
The content is continuously updated and adapted to match your level and pace. The learning process is tailored to be both challenging, engaging, rewarding and fun! You choose how to become a Swedish Professional, using your smartphone, tablet and/or computer.
With Knowly, you can improve your Swedish grammar knowledge in between classes by watching our grammar videos. You have access to grammar for all levels, which makes it a great opportunity to revisit the basics and repeat what you’ve covered in class.
In addition to our grammar videos, we offer several creative exercises where you can practice your Swedish skills using extra material outside of your course book. These creative exercises enable you to learn even more about Swedish culture and practice your reading proficiency in between classes.
With Memrise, you can expand your Swedish vocabulary and practice spelling and pronunciation in an efficient way. The app registers your learning progress and the words that you have difficulties with will occur more often.
