is the beginner’s course. After having completed the course the students are expected to have acquired a basic knowledge of and skills in Swedish, in the first place an oral vocabulary and phrase usage for everyday situations. The students are expected to be able to take part in conversations about short texts and to understand spoken Swedish in simple listening exercises. Students are expected to have reached an A1/A2 level after this 7,5 ECTS course.

Svenska som främmande språk, steg 2 (Swedish as a foreign language, level 2)
