Great news for those searching for free Swedish courses in Stockholm. Folkuniversitet now offers free SFI Swedish classes on their campus.
SFI at Folkuniversitetet
For most newcomers in Stockholm learning Swedish is a top priority. However, this can be difficult if you have a tight schedule or a tight budget. For this reason many people enroll in free Swedish classes through SFI, which is a service offered to foreigners through the Swedish government. SFI courses are held in various locations throughout the city, but for people who prefer to learn in a more academic environment there is some great news. Stockholm’s Folkuniversitet now offers SFI courses! That means you can take advantage of the free SFI service and also learn Swedish on a campus surrounded by Swedes and international students.
Folkuniversitetet offers both SFI and non-SFI language courses as well as upper secondary studies and many other types of courses in the arts. The classes are held in a beautiful building near Odenplan where the learning environment is characterised by an international, open and creative atmosphere and many different languages can be heard in the hallways.
Here you are welcome to meet our experienced and well educated teachers. We help you to achieve your goals based on your experience, abilities and needs. We start where you are. –Brochure for Folkuniversitet
