Finally, apart from the conversational meetups, would you be interested in attending additional meetups to celebrate things like Midsommar, Lucia, or to a showing of a Swedish film?

Yes definitely!

Would you be willing to pay a small fee at each Meetup to cover running costs?


Meetings are usually held in the evenings. The conversation meetups in a cafe are weeknights and nights out for music weekends.. with the occasional Swedish film whenever they're on. Is there any evening you would be unable to attend?

Mondays are out

On a scale of 0 (total beginner) to 10 (completely fluent), how much Swedish would you say you knew? (If you're unsure, just have a guess!)

probably 5 - lots to learn, need to get braver in speaking/actually producing my own sentences!!

Have you ever studied Swedish before? If so, where did you study and how long did you study for?

I studied swedish in school in Uppsala for the 18months we lived there - but spoke very little swedish ironically since I was in the first two years of high school and all my friends wanted to speak english...and hear my Aussie accent! But then in 2007 I took adult education lessons in Swedish - beginners and then intermediate - which were both 16 week courses. A good refresher!


Hej! I lived in Uppsala as a child and understand a lot of Swedish but would like to speak more. I'm new to Glasgow, having relocated from Melbourne where I hung out with Swedes and sang in a Swedish choir. Jag ser fram emot att fika snart! Shelly :D

What Shelly J. is saying about this Meetup Group

Such a nice group of people with some experienced non-native speakers and very generous native speakers willing to talk to and help out those keen to learn and grow in Swedish language. A great night out all round and fabulous speaking practice :-D
