Swedish courses for companies
At Swedish for Professionals our goal is to help integrate international talent into Swedish society and to provide innovative language education that increases individual communication abilities, motivation and work performance.
With this vision in mind, we provide technology-enhanced language training services and offer corporate course packages for small groups and individuals. Our Swedish courses for companies are run by professional Swedish language coaches right at your company premises with high flexibility in scheduling. In Sweden, language training is usually sponsored by the employer.
We are specializing in teaching international professionals the Swedish language, culture, work etiquette and business-specific terminology. Through our classes and online digital platform we provide practical learning material, which is tailored to individual needs of the course participants and overall needs of your company. Setting specific goals turns language training from an element of cost into an investment into corporate communication.

Swedish culture workshops
Cultural understanding is important in order to navigate both professional and personal life in a new country. In the multicultural setting of an increasingly global market, intercultural communication becomes very important. A sense of cultural knowledge improves internal and external communication, improves understanding of customer behavior and can enhance team spirit. An insight into another culture also challenges thought processes and can foster a better understanding of other people in general.
For you as an employer, signaling ambition to integrate your employees attracts new talent. Talents that are more likely to stay in Sweden if they gain a better understanding of how to handle everyday interactions and feel a sense of belonging to society.
Apart from our Swedish language courses, we offer workshops to introduce newcomers to Swedish culture and Swedish business culture. The two-hour workshop covers Swedish culture and norms, Swedish business know-how, the drivers behind Swedish behavior and unspoken rules and elements defining modern Sweden. We use historical events and established cultural theory frameworks to explain these different elements and give tips for dealing with the Swedish cultural environment. Dive into the waters with us and explore the Swedish culture iceberg where we find out more about Swedish cultural drivers, hierachies and teamwork in Swedish organizations. We’ll help you to navigate “landet lagom” (the land of “just enough”), which could actually be the most extreme country in the world!
Many of our clients choose to include this workshop in their introduction for new, non-Swedish, employees. As all of our services, the workshop can be tailored to your need.
By investing in improving the Swedish language knowledge of international talent, your company:
- Reduces uncertainty in internal and external business communications.
- Enhances knowledge transfer within your company.
- Encourages networking by providing employees with the necessary language and intercultural communication skills.
- Increases employee motivation and loyalty toward your organization.
- Signals care for international talent by helping them to integrate better into the Swedish society and your company’s corporate culture.
