There are several circumstances (read below) that affect your learning process. The first lesson starts off with a survey, to maximize your learning abilities.
◎ Your prior knowledge, i.e. how much Swedish you already know and how long you have lived in Sweden.
◎ Your needs. In what context do you need to use the Swedish language?
◎ Your knowledge of other languages. The more languages you already master, the easier it will be to learn another language.
◎ If your intention is to stay in Sweden permanently.
◎ Your mother tongue. Different languages are more or less related to the Swedish language, which affects whether learning is perceived as more or less difficult.
◎ Your level of ambition and motivation. Is language learning a necessity or “only” a desire? Is the course voluntarily selected or appointed by someone else?
◎ How and to what extent you use the Swedish language today. Do you listen to Swedish radio, do you speak Swedish in your spare time, what are the possibilities for you to speak Swedish at your workplace?
◎ Which or what skills you want to focus on; speaking, listening comprehension, writing, or reading. Nevertheless, all languages are based on grammatical rules.
◎ Possibilities to continue the language learning after the end of the course.
◎ Your linguistic interest and aptitude (which usually go hand in hand).
