Swedish Language Online Course with Lund University

DU students may study Swedish language for academic credit!

Collaborating with Lund University's Centre for Languages & Literature and DU's Center for World Languages & Cultures, we have developed an hybrid Swedish Language class, first offered in Spring 2018. This course allows for students to study beginning Swedish for credit (INTZ 1101) through synchronous online lectures delivered by a faculty from Lund University and on-campus tutorial sessions with a TA from DU. Once the student completes the DU course, they are able to enter the second level at Lund University if they choose to study abroad or continue their study through the Directed Independent Language Study program at DU. Below is the course description:  

This course is an introduction to the Swedish Language, emphasizing interpretive listening and reading, presentational speaking and writing, and interpersonal communication skills. The course consists of teaching and practical exercises pertaining to vocabulary, pronunciation, and sentence structure. Cultural topics pertaining to Sweden and Swedish society aim to facilitate students' transition into study abroad. This course is delivered synchronously via an online meeting software platform, such as Zoom, by a Swedish as a Foreign Language instructor at Lund University in Sweden. Students engage as a class remotely through both audio and video connection; students receive login instructions prior to week 1. Remote attendance and participation during class sessions is mandatory.

NOTE: This course is offered for elective credit only. Successful completion of this course prepares students to register for Swedish as a Foreign Language: Level 2 (SFSA12) at Lund University.
