Swedish classes in Stockholm

As our article, Free Swedish Language Classes: Part 1 – SFI, states Sweden has free language courses for residents. SFI has a long history dating back to the 60s and has been a huge success story for this country. However, SFI is not necessarily the right choice for everyone. One of SFI’s greatest perks is that it is flexible. For some this flexibility is the essential requirement that they need to succeed at Swedish. They have the freedom to live in the way that works best for them and, if they have one, their family. However, for others, this flexible style of learning is not right for them. If I had a kronor for each time a person gave me reasons why SFI was not right for them…

No doubt you are wondering, who are these non-flexible people? Am I one of these people who don’t like a flexible style of learning? This is a question I can not answer. I will however share a bit of wisdom a friend gave me. That said if you are the kind of person who just wants to get on with it, follow a set and rigorous schedule and don’t mind paying for it, then maybe SFI is not right for you.

Whatever the case, don’t worry because there are many private Swedish courses available. Whatever you choose, we at Your Living City, wish you the best of luck with your Swedish journey.
