About Språkstudion

Språkstudion is the Stockholm University language learning resource centre. We are commissioned by the Faculty of Humanities to provide tools and infrastructure for language study, teaching and research. On this page you can read about our resources and activities.

 

Language Cafe

Språkstudion hosts Language Cafe sessions in a number of languages every week, both on campus and online. The Language Cafes give you the opportunity to practice your languages in an informal setting, together with other students and native-level language supporters. All Stockholm University students, staff and alumni are welcome to join, as are students and staff from our partner universities.

Language Buddy

Through Språkstudion's Tandem language exchange programme, you can be matched with a language buddy to mutually practise each other's languages. This type of language exchange gives you opportunities for individual language practice, as you get to know your language buddy and their culture.

More language activities

In addition to the language cafes and language exchange programme, we also offer other language activities. The past academic year, we have organised weekly Swedish lunch sessions for staff, a Swedish film club and a Karaoke event in Japanese. 

Please see our calendar for upcoming events.
