When my sister returned home from UISS (2014) and talked about her fantastic time in Uppsala overwhelmed with joy I knew this would be the perfect place for me to study Swedish when I decided to apply for an Erasmus exchange in Sweden. I couldn’t be more grateful for the experiences I made with UISS. It was great to have such motivated teachers and although it was intense we laughed a lot. The learning curve is very steep and you make a lot of progress every day, especially by having conversations in small groups in class. The afternoon classes give you the opportunity to improve your Swedish in a more amusing and relaxing way. It was a delight seeing performances of the Cornelis Vreeswijk afternoon class where students sung with great passion while improving their pronunciation. My class about the Swedish society gave me a perfect insight in Swedish traditions as well as how different organizations such as the insurance system work.

It is wonderful to meet people from all over the world and have such a fun time together right from the start. The excellent staff makes sure to involve a lot of Swedish traditions which include a lot of singing and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.

Thank you for the amazing time! I warmly recommend studying Swedish with UISS!!
