Course Description

Välkommen till svenska 101! In this class we will introduce and get used to the basics of the Swedish language and culture, with a focus on communicative and practical skills. Learning Swedish and about Sweden is a fascinating way to begin approaching contemporary world issues, history, media, society, politics, innovation, and everything else! While we will spend most of our time focusing on Sweden and Swedish-speaking Finland, there will also be opportunities for comparative and personalized integration with your own interests, studies, goals. By the end of the first day, you will already be able to speak Swedish and realize how awesome, beautiful, and interesting the language is! Vi ses snart! [See you soon!]
