Group Courses | 4 - 8 Participants

Small Groups

All our group courses have a maximum of 8 participants, meaning you will receive plenty of feedback from your teacher. There is also room for adapting the course content and method to suit the individual needs of the participants. With more time given to each student, you will be making fast progress and have any errors corrected at an early stage.

Experienced Teachers

No outsourcing, no bad surprises. Your teacher is either Djina Wilk, 13 years of experience of teaching Swedish to adults, or Sofi Tegsveden Deveaux, with 9 years experience. Both have a consistent record of very high student satisfaction, thanks to their skills in linguistics and teaching, professionalism and ability to adapt teaching method to the participants’ needs, goals and preferences.

Measureable Progress

We use the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) to define starting and target levels, and to ensure fast and perceivable progress, as you will be learning together with other participants at the same level as you. We do not considerate theory as separate from practice, but integrate communicative exercises in grammar and vocabulary.
