This course deepens the different perspectives of the Swedish language and Swedish society that was introduced in the previous course "Swedish as a foreign language - beginner's course" 7.5 credits. The focus rests on the students' own linguistic progression. This course is largely centered on communicative exercises designed to train and encourage wider knowledge and skills in the Swedish language. Written and oral statements, which are mandatory, are reported continuously. The course also provides some guidance in Swedish cultural heritage and society.
