All the cources were in English and also both the locals and the exchange students could understand and speak English. That made the communication really easy. I didn't have any problems. But because we thought that it would be really nice as far as we were in Sweden to learn Swedish as well, most of the exchange students took swedish courses at the university.

English is spoken quite well throughout Sweden. In fact, it was difficult to learn Swedish when Swedes could speak English much more easily and fluently. I rarely had any kind of inconvenience due to language barrier, but learning some basic Swedish made everyday life a lot easier and more rewarding.

The language of introduction is English. Since I have successfully finished a placement in the UK, I did not have any difficulty with that. There is a course Swedish for Beginners, which I followed. That is a very nice way of mastering the basic knowledge of the Swedish language.

Something that has always impressed me since from Sweden is the high level of english that every single person have there. It didn't matter if they were a proffesor, a taxi driver, a waiter... Having the TV programms in English with swedish subtitles help a lot.

Swedish is a BEAUTIFUL language. Since I keep in contact with many of my Swedish friends to this day, I still get to hear it occasionally. I picked up quite a bit of Swedish, although most of the Swedes will make every attempt to speak English with you!!
