About the course

This course is designed to provide students with basic skills in the Swedish language. It covers such aspects as the structure and function of the language, words and phrases, simple oral communication, listening comprehension, and elementary reading texts. In addition, there will be a basic introduction to Swedish culture and society; this will be achieved partly by means of a number of lectures in English.
