This is an online beginner’s Swedish course which includes pronunciation exercises, reading, oral training, basic Swedish grammar and short writing exercises. After having completed the course, you should have basic knowledge of Swedish – A1 in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
We meet approximately once a week in a virtual classroom – a Zoom-room. Before each Zoom-session you need to work with the corresponding course book chapter on your own using a Step-by-Step guide and prepare the assignments listed in the guide. The Step-by-Step guides, the pre-recorded lectures and all other material you need throughout the course (except the course books and the corresponding audio files) are available in the Linköping University learning platform Lisam (lisam.liu.se). The course books used are Rivstart A1-A2 – Textbook (ISBN: 9789127434202) and Exercise book (ISBN: 9789127434219).
There are eleven Zoom-sessions (10 chapters + introduction) but they are not obligatory. Instead, there are 5 obligatory assignments (2 written assignments, 1 short film, 1 oral assignment and 1 verbtest) which need to be completed to pass the course.
In order to take part in the course you must have a computer with a stable internet connection, a headset (preferably USB) and a web cam so you can communicate with sound and image.
