Swedish Language Courses in Greater Manchester

Many professionals in companies across the UK, as well as private individuals, have benefited from an Swedish Language Course with SIMON & SIMON.

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 Greater Manchester 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.

1:1 and Group Swedish Courses in Greater Manchester

Our Swedish language courses are available on both a 1:1 and group basis, but the majority of our clients offer 1:1 Swedish training to their employees. However, with careful planning, group training can offer great value for money, provided there is a real commitment from the participants to get together at the same time every week. We strongly recommend you keep group numbers to 6 or less for these types of courses to be successful. Those learning Swedish in Greater Manchester on a 1:1 basis will naturally make much faster progress, as the course will be designed around their individual needs and focus on their particular strengths and weaknesses.

Swedish Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON Swedish language course has a highly experienced, multi-lingual Account Manager who oversees it. When your Swedish course starts you will be sent a profile on your trainer, materials for your course and a Course Plan as well as a Progress Report for every 40 hours of training. Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter that you will also receive, contains a prize draw as well as weblinks to a number of learning resources.

Swedish Course Locations & Schedules

We have a global network of language trainers so our Swedish language courses can be arranged for almost any major European city, or even further abroad. SIMON & SIMON have run Swedish language courses for clients in many diverse locations. Swedish language courses can be run in your home for your convenience, but many of our clients prefer to run them in their offices so as to minimise travel. For a list of the locations of the full-time residential Swedish language courses that we offer, contact our office.

Greater Manchester Swedish Course Schedules

Some of our students attend more than one 90-minute weekly session if work circumstances allow, and most will attend at least one per week. Weekend Courses in Swedish can be arranged on request. Our Swedish courses are available 12 hours a day, from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday. 30 hour per week intensive Swedish courses can be held on clients’ premises or in residential centres in the UK or abroad.

Swedish Course Content

We will tailor your Swedish language course for your specific aims and level of knowledge. Before you start your Swedish language course we will assess your goals and level of Swedish experience. Your desire to learn Swedish may be simply to develop basic skills, or you may have some level of proficiency and wish to increase your ability to use Swedish to discuss business. You may want to develop your language skills so that you can use Swedish in negotiations and meetings or improve your pronunciation and telephone skills. No matter what goals you have, you can be confident of our Swedish trainers experience and that your Swedish language course is tailored to your needs and your goals will be quickly met.

Swedish Language Examination Courses

Our students’ pass rate for Swedish examinations is at 95%, and we are happy to help with the preparations for any such examination. Our high pass rate shows the value of working with Swedish teachers in Greater Manchester who have a higher level of experience than average. SIMON & SIMON also arrange registration for Swedish examinations as well as administering the examination and issuing the results.

About Swedish

Swedish is a North Germanic language, spoken by approximately 10 million people, predominantly in Sweden and parts of Finland, especially along its coast and on the Åland islands. It is, to a considerable extent, mutually intelligible with Norwegian and to a lesser extent with Danish. Along with the other North Germanic languages, Swedish is a descendant of Old Norse, the common language of the Germanic peoples living in Scandinavia during the Viking Era. It is currently the largest of the North Germanic languages by numbers of speakers.

About Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in North West England, with a population of 2.6 million. It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972.

Greater Manchester spans 496 square miles (1,285 km2). It is landlocked and borders Cheshire (to the south-west and south), Derbyshire (to the south-east), West Yorkshire (to the north-east), Lancashire (to the north) and Merseyside (to the west). There is a mix of high density urban areas, suburbs, semi-rural and rural locations in Greater Manchester, but overwhelmingly the land use is urban. It has a focused central business district, formed by Manchester city centre and the adjoining parts of Salford and Trafford, but Greater Manchester is also a polycentric county with ten metropolitan districts, each of which has at least one major town centre and outlying suburbs.

The Greater Manchester Urban Area is the third most populous conurbation in the UK, and spans across most of the county’s territory. For the 12 years following 1974 the county had a two-tier system of local government; district councils shared power with the Greater Manchester County Council.
