Course description

The Swedish 3 course (for semi-beginners) is a basic language acquisition course and requires some prior knowledge of the language (A2.1). All basic skills are covered: speaking, listening, writing and reading. In addition, attention is paid to vocabulary and grammar. Swedish culture and society are also discussed. 

Students are expected to prepare lessons at home. A written assessment takes place at the end of the course. If you have attended 80% of the lessons and successfully completed the final test, you will receive a certificate.

Students who have completed Swedish 2 (level A2.1) at ATC Leiden can register for Swedish 3. Students who have completed elsewhere in chapter 1 to 12 of Rivstart Textbok / Övningsbok A1 + A2 can register.
