I must admit that this 3-week program is very intense, but at the same time it is the most meaningful and fruitful experience that I have ever had.

First, the language courses were just perfect. I was in the A2+ course in the morning, and I joined the grammar and conversation course in the afternoon. In the morning, our teacher Elisabeth taught us in a systematic way that is very easy to follow and understand. She spent a lot of time listening to our discussions and helped us equip ourselves with necessary vocabularies. In the afternoon, Henrik and Nils taught in such a fun and interactive way, which enabled me to improve my speaking skills through different role-play scenarios and tackle all the difficulties about specific grammatical topics. I felt myself improving every single day.

Second, our dear staff: Emma, Ruud, Angelica and Jonas, have organized so many activities for us to get to know each other as well as to know the Swedish culture. I had so much fun learning all the drinking songs, the midsummer traditions and how to toast on the dining table!

Third, I also joined the Lapland trip before I left. I was never a sporty person and the trip was so demanding for me. However, I felt I have accomplished something impossible when I arrived at the top of the mountain, and I am so glad that I actually completed the challenge!

Last but not least, here is a place not only for learning Swedish and Swedish culture, you can get a lot more beyond that by communicating with all the classmates that come from all over the world. Despite all the differences, we learned to understand each other and be open-minded, and I have made so many true friends! Believe me, this will be a wonderful life experience. Come to Uppsala, learn, have fun, and break all the boundaries!
