Collaboration in Swedish as a second language
We offer bespoke contract education to municipalities, authorities, companies and organisations that wish to focus on competence development in areas of multilingualism, second language acquisition and education. The courses turn to all teachers within the educational system. We offer complete course packages on, for example, digital language learning environments, reading comprehension and reading strategies in a second language, and workplace learning, but we can also create courses that are tailored to the specific needs of the client.
