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 I would.
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?
Not in particular.
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!)
I attended basic SFI in Västerås last year so probably about 4...
Have you ever studied Swedish before? If so, where did you study and how long did you study for?
Would you like to learn Swedish? Have you learnt Swedish in the past and would like to continue?
Then come along to Fika och Snacka, the brand new Meetup group for all those interested in Swedish and Sweden!
The main purpose of the group is for learners of Swedish to get together to practise speaking, and also to socialise! There are no evening classes in Swedish available in Glasgow at the moment, so this could be your only opportunity to speak Swedish and meet other like-minded folk. It is perfect for those who have been learning Swedish by themselves and would like some extra practise, or for those who have perviously taken classes but wish to continue practising and learning.
People from all different levels of Swedish are welcome, from beginners to fluent speakers!
Any native Swedes are also welcome to come along and converse with us - we also plan to celebrate all the Swedish festivals such as Lucia, Midsommar and even crayfish parties! The more the merrier!
There is also a plan to have regular showings of Swedish films in the near future, at Glasgow University, as are outings to see Swedish films at the GFT.
