Everybody in Sweden speaks a very good English, so the communication was very easy. However, it is a good idea to learn the Swedish language to improve one's integration in the local life.

Overall
I wish I had known...
It is good to try to find activities mixing local and international students (courses, sport...) so that the contacts with local people is eased. Try to apply for an intensive Swedish course from home, so that you don't have to wait one semester to start the language course (long waiting list).

Tip: try to prepare your documents for the Resident permit application from home (certificate of financial means, social and personal insurance certificates), you will save time. Visit the neighbour Scandinavian countries.
