2. Language course provider

In the fall, the proven teachers from the Stockholm partner school come to Åland to experience this special island group with you. They teach with a lot of commitment and joy!

3. Location

The Swedish courses take place in Åland’s pretty capital  Mariehamn, a “little big city” with about 11,500 inhabitants. The autonomous archipelago of Åland does not belong to Sweden, but to Finland!

The more than 6,700 islands and archipelagos are located in the heart of Scandinavia, between Stockholm and Helsinki, in the northern Baltic Sea. However, the sole official language in this Finnish province of about 29,000 inhabitants is Swedish.
Åland has its own flag, its own internet country code, its own car license plates and its own postage stamps. The official currency, however, is the euro, as in the rest of Finland; most of the time, however, you can also pay with the Swedish krona.
