Since October, I have been following courses with SFI – Swedish for Immigrants. These classes are free and are designed for want to learn to speak Swedish. Since I talked already a bit of Swedish, I followed courses of the last level – D-level. And last Tuesday, I was able to take the national Swedish test!
National Swedish test, what for?
The national Swedish test is divided in four parts: writing, reading, speaking and listening. The test lasts a whole day – approximately from 8am to 4pm. But don’t worry you have a few breaks between the different parts!
To pass it means to get a certificate stating that you can work in Swedish. It is very useful when you are looking for a job here.
Classes with SFI
To be honest, I missed the deadline to register to Swedish classes at LiU, so that is why I registered with SFI once I got my personal number. And I don’t regret at all! I learned a lot.
Classes take place twice a week from 5.30pm to 8.30pm. It is quite intense but very useful!
You can register by filling in a form and sending it to Birgitta Skolan, in charge of organizing classes.
