Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my English
Was learning Swedish a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Swedish
How much did you improve your English?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
How much did you improve your Swedish?
My level before: Did not speak it
My level after: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
Personal comments:
Most Swedes are very good in the English language and they like to speak English. You can do everything in Sweden only with knowing English. Usually Swedes just switch to English language when they notice that you are a foreigner. Therefore it's hard to practise the Swedish language.
