Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


In this module, students will increase their knowledge of Swedish as a foreign language, enabling them to actively and almost fluently communicate with a native speaker on topics of general interest or in familiar fields using logically-structured arguments. Students review and deepen their knowledge of deponent verbs (verbs ending in -s), transitive and intransitive verbs, passive with 's' and passive with perfect participles, adverbs and conjuncitons. Students learn the following new grammar elements: phrasal verbs, syntax/ word order in complex main and subordinate clauses with multiple compliments.

Learning Outcome

The module refers to level B2 Independent Language Use of the CEFR. Students acquire knowledge of Swedish as a foreign language at the standard language level with a focus on intercultural, cultural and academic aspects. Students can effortlessly and independently understand the main points of authentic articles, reports and texts from their own fields and areas of interest and identify positions. Students can understand longer discussions and lectures on contemporary topics and within their field of study, provided that speakers clearly enunciate. They are able to compose longer texts on general or popular scientific topics and can use more complex sentence structures as well as specialized vocabulary. They can verbally interact clearly and coherently on many subjects in their fields or areas of interest in logically-structured fashion.
