Final comments
Linköping is very well located to travel everywhere in Sweden aand also Denmark, Finland, even Russia... If you are under 26, you have discounts in train and buses...but still it remains expensive! Linköping is nice but small...plan to travel with friends...Sweden is a so nice country!

Personal comments
English is not the mother tongue here but every inhabitant can speak english...so it is easy to understand and make ourselves understood! The teachers do not always speak very good so the improvement could have been better for us...but we couldn't expect more, otherwise we had to go to England or America!!!
