Free Swedish lessons in Second Life — starting October 2

What: Free Swedish lessons for beginners
When: Four courses, starting Tuesday, October 2, 7am SL time (4pm Stockholm time, 10am New York time)
Where: Second House of Sweden auditorium, Swedish Institute sim.

Ever wish you spoke just enough Swedish to break the ice with the cute Swedish boy/girl/furry you’ve been spying at the other end of the dance floor? The Swedish Institute can help.

Starting Tuesday, October 2, at 7am SL time (4pm Stockholm time), we’ll be giving a series of free Swedish lessons in Second Life for beginners. You’ll find that you in fact understand quite a lot, even if you have never have heard spoken Swedish before. You don’t need to prepare beforehand or know any Swedish — just show up, hang out and have fun learning.

Instructor Lasse will be conducting four courses in total, using Second Life’s voice chat technology and a video screen. Expected dates for the subsequent courses are October 9, 22 and November 5, all at 7am SL time. Attend one, some, or all.

See you there!

Note: Please be sure to have voice-chat enabled (to hear Lasse and others) and Quicktime installed (to view the live video).

  4. I’m quite interested in attending this free class and learn Swedish – but I’m a little disappointed to hear that chat technology will ne used. No good for people like me who are profoundly Deaf. Maybe offer one or two text-only classes?

    Please, please!

  55. Well, For most people, I think talking about svenska as a language’s a kind of talking about a hard language that’s so hard to be learnt or at least it’s to take one’s ages to learn it! For me, there’s no doubt, For those whom have reasonable, advanced and sturdy knoweldge in English, German and Dutch. Learning swedish for ’em is so easy due to the similarity between svenska and these above languages. to make things clear, There’re a lot of books on the net that can help people learn swedish. Motivation’s a key element to achieve this goal. being consistent whether by attending courses or going over the material you use..
    At heart, I am learning. I need someone whom can help me speak swedish. At least forming a phrase is gonna sthg of interesting for me!
