Courses designed specifically around your needs

We have a terrific team of qualified native-speaker Swedish teachers with an average of 15 years’ experience.

They will ensure you benefit from a course designed specifically around your needs, whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced learner with more specialised requirements. We consistently receive excellent feedback on our Swedish tutors from our clients,. We send our students a profile on their Swedish tutor prior to their Swedish lessons commencing, with information on the tutor’s background and experience for your own piece of mind.

If the only experience you have of studying a language is from your time in school, you may not know that there has been a revolution in the teaching of modern languages so that it is both more fun and more worthwhile. Your Swedish teacher in Birmingham will be using the Communicative Approach, where your lessons will, with few exceptions, be conducted in Swedish. You will see your progress from that very first lesson and will soon be confident enough to conduct business or talk socially in Swedish.

Averaging 15 years of experience, our native Swedish speaking qualified teachers construct your course so that your individual requirements are met, no matter what your level of experience. Our Swedish teachers receive excellent feedback from our clients.

Modern language teaching is now approached much differently to how you might remember learning languages in school. The experience is now much more fun and rewarding. The Communicative Approach, where your Swedish teacher will conduct your lessons almost entirely in Swedish means that progress is made from your very first lesson. Soon, you will have such confidence that using Swedish in a social or business setting will be no problem.

1:1 and Group Swedish Courses in Birmingham

Our Swedish courses are usually offered by our clients as 1:1 training for their employees. Group sessions, however, are also available and can be excellent value for money. Planning is required so that participants all meet at the same time each week, and we recommend that numbers are kept to 6 or less. 1:1 Swedish lessons at Birmingham mean that you will have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that your progress is quicker.

Swedish Course Management

A multi-lingual Account Manager with extensive experience is responsible for each SIMON & SIMON Swedish language course. A profile on your trainer, Course Plan and course materials will be sent to you when you start your Swedish course. After every 40 hours of training you will receive a Progress Report. We will also send you Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter, which contains a wonderful prize draw and valuable language learning resource weblinks.

The vast majority of our Swedish lessons take place at our clients’ offices, removing the need for you to travel, but Swedish lessons can take place in your home if that is more convenient. We can also arrange full-time residential Swedish language courses for you – just contact our office for information on available destinations.

Birmingham Swedish Course Schedules

The Swedish language courses in Birmingham that we run go on through the year. Each week, most of our students will attend at least one of our 90-minute lessons, but many will do more. We can also arrange Weekend Courses for you. Swedish courses run from Monday to Friday, any time from 8am to 6pm.

Swedish Course Content

Before you start your Swedish language course we will assess your level of Swedish and speak to you about your aims so that your Swedish language course can be customised for you. You may have never been exposed to Swedish before and wish to develop basic survival skills, or you may have some experience and wish to be able to speak more fluently in Swedish when discussing business. You may want to further your ability to use Swedish in negotiations and meetings or better your comprehension and pronunciation abilities. Whatever goals you may have, our experienced Swedish language trainers will tailor your Swedish course so that your goals can be quickly met.

About Swedish

Standard Mandarin is a standardized form of spoken Mandarin, based on the Beijing dialect of Mandarin Chinese. Standard Mandarin is the official language of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC, also known as Taiwan), as well as one of four official languages of Singapore. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. About one-fifth of the world’s population, or over one billion people, speaks some variety of Mandarin as their native language. Linguists often view Mandarin as a language family, though owing to China’s socio-political and cultural situation, and the fact that all spoken varieties use one common written system, it is customary to refer to these generally mutually unintelligible variants as “the Mandarin language”.

About Birmingham

Birmingham is a city in the West Midlands, England, and holds the largest population outside of London, in the UK. Developed from a medium-sized market town, Birmingham grew to international prominence during the 18th century, at the heart of the industrial revolution.

By 1791, Birmingham, was recognised as “the first manufacturing town in the world”. Birmingham holds the second largest metropolitan economy in the UK, with a GDP of $121.1bn in 2014. Birmingham’s six universities make it the largest centre for higher education outside of London in the country. Birmingham has vibrant and influential grassroots in the art, music, literary and culinary scenes.

Birmingham is home to an extensive canal system, which was completed by the 1820s and gave greater access to natural resources and fuel for industries, Birmingham has more miles of canal than Venice. Birmingham’s economy today is dominated by the service sector, which in 2012 accounted for 88% of the city’s employment. Birmingham as a settlement dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era, but there is substantial evidence to suggest a short-lived influx of population occurred between 1700BC and 1000BC, this could have possibly been caused due to conflict or immigration in the surrounding areas.

Birmingham is the youngest city in Europe, with under 25’s accounting for nearly 40% of its population. Although a major city during the industrial revolution, Birmingham is home to some 8,000 acres of parks and open space. An estimated 40% of the UK’s jewellery is produced in Birmingham.

Assess Your Swedish Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Swedish language trainer in Birmingham can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Swedish in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
