When you're doing business in another country, or with international colleagues, it's essential to understand the cultural differences you may encounter. Our trainers will explain the importance of crucial aspects of Swedish business culture, from consensus to fika breaks and doing things lagom.

Suited to your Swedish learning needs
Whether you're planning to do business with Swedish-speaking clients and colleagues, or need to improve your Swedish for customer service, our courses are for you.
Based on your learning needs
Our Swedish trainers will select the appropriate learning material for your skill level, your industry, and your communication goals.
Who are our Swedish language courses for?
Our Swedish courses are perfect for anyone who's looking to reactivate the Swedish they learned in school, expand on their Swedish skills for specific business contexts, or start learning Swedish from scratch before a business trip to facilitate communication with Swedish colleagues.
What you'll learn
Do you have trouble pronouncing Swedish vowels? Get confused with the gender of nouns in Swedish and the article system? Or maybe you have a solid understanding of the grammar and a good vocabulary base, but you haven't spoken Swedish since your school days. Our trainers will evaluate your exact needs and give you the exercises and feedback you need to address those tough points of Swedish.
Even though Swedes are typically proficient in English, being able to connect with them in their language will help you succeed with your Swedish clients and colleagues. Through roleplays and simulations, our trainers will coach you in the skills and strategies needed to use Swedish for relationship-building. If you use Swedish for interacting with customers, we offer customized courses on Swedish for customer service.
