"I'm very happy to have Swedish lessons with Susanne. What she teaches me is not only to express myself in Swedish, but also the Swedish historical background and culture. Learning Swedish is useful, I'm planning to go to Sweden to work in the future. I have also made friends with two Norwegian and one Swedish guy by talking Swedish. Susanne's background in drama/theatre makes her lessons interesting and active, so I don't feel bored or stressful in class."非常高興能有機會向Susanne學習瑞典語。在初級班課程期間，我學習到的不只是基本的語言表達，甚至還有語言背景文化，對於不是把瑞典語當作謀生技能的我，這樣的課程令我覺得豐富多元、生動活潑，讓我覺得多學了一個語言就多活了一個世界了。瑞典語其實蠻實用的，多數的挪威人與丹麥人也都能以瑞典語溝通喔！我打算去瑞典工作! Melody Lin, studied Swedish May-June 2012 in Taipei, Taiwan.
All students will also have access to our online class materials with recordings of dialogues etc.
Swedish Favorites: Fika
If there is one word that a foreigner visiting Sweden will learn, it is "fika". This word is both a verb and a noun. It can be translated as a coffee break but it also describes the act of taking a break and relax. Most Swedish offices and factories will close for both a morning and afternoon "fika". Its a time to relax and build some relationships. Not to mention, having a coffee and cinnamonbun!
Swedish Favorites: Meatballs
When asked what the most Swedish food is, most will say Swedish meatballs. While people all over the world eats delicious meatballs, Swedish people claim meatballs with potatoes, brown gravy and lingberry jam as the dish closest to their hearts.
Swedish Favorites: Midsummers
After a long long long winter, Swedish people are ready to celebrate that summer and warmth have come, even if its just for a few months. That's what makes the Midsummer's Eve celebration so important. Everyone wants to find a spot out in the country side where they can BBQ, drink a few beers and dance around the May-pole.
