Swedish Courses for All Levels

Home / Swedish Courses for All Levels

With a flexible schedule you can choose a morning, afternoon or evening class that covers conversation, grammar, Swedish culture and traditions. Our objective is to advance your Swedish, and to do so, we will work as a team. First, you will let us know your goals in studying Swedish, then we’ll personalize your lessons. A language should be a fun and an enjoyable adventure, and an opportunity to share our culture, customs and traditions with others. Hello Sweden will keep it simple! Everybody can learn Swedish and your classes will be fun and interesting.

The lessons will be held in Helsingborg (Hittarp), student’s home or office in Skåne, or via Skype.
