In Sweden every one speaks english so it was very easy to get around only with that language: But it was a pleasure to learn the swedish language, because the grammar and most of the words are very similar to geramn so it was quite easy for me. But if you don´t like to learn that language, because you say you don´t need it, no problem english is enough. The tele, cinema and all other things are only with swedish subtittles and the language is still the original one of the movie. At the university it is no problem to follow the courses, because nearly no one is a native english speaker, so the sentences are easy to understand and it is no problem doing mistakes.

An exchange program is, according to me, the best way to improve a language. Of course the official language of Sweden is ... Swedish. But "native swedish" people speak perferct English. And English is THE official language between international students. It is amazing how this language can unite people ! I think the area in which you improve the most is the understanding. Now I can easily communicate in English with native people, which was not the case before. An everyday life in a foreign language is also the best way to learn plenty of new words day after day.

Although the swedish spoken in south of Swden (skåne) differs from swedish spoken in Finland or in Stockholm (capital) area , once you get used to the intonation and to the rhythm you pick up the languae very easily. Language used i by professors is easy to understand , and everyone will modify their pronounciation to make it easier for foreigners. Overall knowledge of english is excellent, like in most scandinavian countries.

The main language I spoke in Lund was English. English has never been a big deal for me since I am educated in english since I was eight years old. But since I had to speak English everyday and could speak to native English speakers I observed some big improvements in my English language skills! And a big compliment for the Swedes, who speak English normally even better than me!

I took part in 3 courses organised by the Folksuniversitet in Lund studying Swedish. These were of use for conversation however as all locals spoke almost fluent English it was not a problem and was to an extent difficult to practice Swedish at times. Together with the fact that my courses were taught in English also. Communication was therefore very easy for me.

Swedish is a pretty easy language. If you want to learn you can, there are courses available everywhere. But the danger is Lund is that you speak English allt he time, with international students, teachers and even Swedes. Try to interact more with the locals and insist on speaking Swedish. You will also be accepted more easily.
