Personal comments
It is not that I didnt like it, but the exams were more less easy, and even if you failed in the first attempt; the second exam was very similar to the 1st. Loved having one course per period and the exam at the end of period, instead of having all the exams in the end of the semester at the same time. So no improvements for exams; though the courses could have had more practical classes (they were very theory based).

Personal comments
While Swedish is the native language in Sweden, almost all Swedes speak fluent English. Swedes will speak Swedish to each other in social situations.. so sometimes it is difficult because you can't join in on their conversations. Most signs, magazines, newspapers etc. are only in Swedish.. so sometimes that can be difficult as well. However, Swedes are very friendly and helpful people.. if you ever have any questions about anything most Swedes will be glad to help you out. My classes at school were all offered in English.. so that was not a problem. It just takes some getting used to living in a country whose native language is something completely foreign to you. You will not understand everything that is going on at all times. However, if you speak to a Swede in English.. he or she will automatically switch over to English for you.. which is very accomodating. As I said, almost all Swedes speak fluent english.. but they will speak their native language of Swedish.. until you request otherwise.

Traveller Checks are a thing of the past! All you need to live in stockholm (and travel throughout western and eastern europe) is an american bank account and ATM card. And European ATMs don't charge fees!
