    Learning Swedish – a web course

    Learning Swedish is a website administered by the Swedish Institute. It's a joint project between universities and university teachers in Sweden and abroad. (The site replaces our earlier site Kom Loss.)

    Do you need a study buddy?

    Getting a buddy is a smart thing to do. You make new friends, you get someone to help you with questions and concerns, and someone to contact if you want to know more about Stockholm. It is also a great way to learn basic language skills.
