Abisko
Abisko is located north of the Arctic Circle, and the course offers you the opportunity to get to know this beautiful region during the Swedish summer:
– experience endless days in the midnight sun
– enjoy the exuberant nature around, for example in Abisko National Park
– learn and use the Swedish language and culture with locals in the north.

4. Course offer and service

In the morning there are 3 lessons (60 minutes each) of Swedish training – the theory! If you book 30 lessons, there will be another 3-4 lessons in the afternoon and evening, but this time practical Swedish training, led by teacher Katharina. Here you will practice and apply what you have learned. Various activities accompany the afternoon lessons: sightseeing, activities, hikes, nature experiences, meditation if desired.

Different teaching materials are used, which the teacher brings along. There are copying costs of approx. 10 € for this.
