SFI – Swedish For Immigrants

Alma Folkhögskola’s courses in Swedish For Immigrants (SFI) are for those who have another mother tounge than Swedish. We have teachers with years of experience from SFI, both native and with other cultural background, who can offer language support in different mother tongues. You get to practice reading, writing, listening and talking. You will also learn about Swedish society, culture and work.

Our courses in SFI are the same as the courses that the municipality arranges and you receive a grade the same way. Alma Folkhögskola has no queue for SFI. You can start studying with us as soon as your application has been approved by Studie- och yrkesvägledningen.
