2 October - Learn more about Swedish for Immigrants

The most important reason to learn Swedish is that it increases your employment potential and can be a requirement for entering higher education in Sweden. Furthermore you will become more independant, able to interact more closely with the Swedes and get a better understanding of the Swedish culture.

We have invited “LundaVälkomsten Vux” from Lund Municipality to inform you about Swedish for Immigrants (SFI) courses designed for newcomers who needs basic knowledge of the Swedish language. By following this course, you will learn to speak, read and write in Swedish. You will also practice conversation in everyday and workplace scenarios. After completing the course you will receive a grade that will be useful when applying for a job for example.

We have also invited a representative from Kommunförbundet Skåne to inform you about Occupational-SFI courses (Yrkes-SFI). That is a Swedish language education with a focus on professional language. The courses start at different levels of Swedish and can be combined with vocational or employment training, as well as with higher education. Occupational-SFI also provide an opportunity to learn how the labour market and certain professions operate in Sweden. The aim of Occupational SFI is to shorten the time to employment or entrepreneurship.

 

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event. Thank you!
