Come and learn Swedish with us!
Click below to find out more about our daytime and evening workshops running in November.
We didn't start out planning to be 'expat experts'. Actually, all three of us who founded New in Sweden have other careers too.
But. We are all expats and we moved to Sweden. One of us is somewhat (very) nomadic, ending up here via Tanzania, Canada and the UK. Another was born an expat and 'third-culture' child. We're even quite different in age.
We have three different reasons for being here and for staying here.
We all love meeting people who arrive here and come from all walks of life, all over the globe and are here for all manner of reasons (though work and love are the most common ones!). We listen to the challenges and the adventures and always learn something new about other cultures and, of course, Sweden. We answer questions and discuss options.
We provide support, answers, a helping hand when it is needed. It has become part of who we are, what we do.
We still aren't 'expat experts' but we've learnt a thing or two about moving to Sweden and we've been through that same move over and over again with our members.

During this workshop, we will have the opportunity to become familiar with frequently used vocabulary and phrases as part of conversations that we encounter on a daily basis in writing, on the phone, and in face-to-face meetings. In terms of pronunciation, we pay extra attention to consonants. We also look at how certain word structures are related and how to use phrases and questions to develop the interaction.
This workshop will be held mostly in Swedish with some support in English.
Under denna workshop går vi in på några skillnader mellan tal- och skriftspråk. Det handlar om hur vi kommunicerar i sms, email och på telefon, vilket kommer att studeras närmare genom diverse scenarier. Vilka olika typer av samtal möter vi och hur kan vi utveckla dessa? Vi ser lite närmare på ordbildning och vidareutvecklar ordförrådet genom att ta upp synonymer till några vanliga verb. Gällande uttalet står ett antal svenska konsonanter i fokus.
Denna workshop kommer till största del att hållas på svenska.
Under denna workshop kommer vi att gå in på olika sorters samtal som vi kan möta under en dag i Sverige. Vilka ljud, ord och fraser kan vi använda för att få en dialog att kännas (ännu) mer levande? Vi tar även upp några skillnader mellan tal- och skriftspråk och ser på ett antal exempel gällande språkets användning i ett informellt respektive ett formellt sammanhang utifrån diverse tänkbara scenarier. Ett visst fokus kommer att läggas på de svenska hjälpverben.
Denna workshop kommer att hållas på svenska.

"For each and every student I have encountered, my mission has been to first meet them where they are at and then encourage and challenge them to reach higher by paying careful attention to their language objectives, expectations, and individual learning preferences."
Emma's workshops here at New in Sweden are all about one specific topic so that each one gives as much language learning as possible. As well as being about a topic such as food or travel, each workshop will have some grammar focus areas to help us get to grips with it too.
"As a teacher, I use a variety of language exercises in the target language to develop product
