Week 1: ‘Personligt brev’ – how to write a professionally looking personligt brev to go with your CV. You’ll get individual feedback on your own personligt brev.
Week 2: Informal emails and texts – how to communicate in a natural and informal way with friends and family, how to use common abbreviations and everyday expressions and slang.
Week 3: Emails at work – how to get the tone right when you email colleagues at work, or contacting someone in a company/organisation.
Week 4: How to express opinions in text – how to put your arguments and opinions forward in a confident and professional way in a written text.
When you study Swedish in groups (like SFI or Folkuniversitetet, for example), you will rarely (if ever) get detailed, individual feedback on your writing. This is a great opportunity to get feedback and suggestions from Daniel Lind, not only a Swedish teacher but also a published author and a master wordsmith!
Not only will you finish this course with a “personligt brev” that you can use together with your CV in the future, you will also get practice to write both formally and informally. And you will also get access to many useful cheat sheets and check lists, that you can save and use as tools when you need to write something on your own next time.
My name is Daniel, born and raised in the Swedish city of Gothenburg. I have worked in education since 2008, helping students of all ages to reach their potential. Being multilingual (Swedish, English, Polish), I have a passion for languages and tutoring Swedish in particular. I’ve been teaching Swedish in the UK since 2013, and I have taught over 4,000 hours. I am specifically interested in helping learners to read and write better. Beyond teaching, I work as a translator; both English -> Swedish and Swedish -> English. I am also a published author (Steampunk Fairytales), and I love writing!
The course starts 19 September and will end 14 October 2019.
