Read fairy tales and historical fiction, and practice grammar studied in previous Swedish-language courses, while examining it in greater depth. This course is suitable for students who have learned spoken Swedish and for heritage students who lack formal Swedish education and would like to improve their grammar. The focus is on conversation and fluency. Short essays are assigned weekly to improve writing skills. By the end of the course, reach the low- to mid-intermediate level on the ACTFL proficiency scale.
