|Swedish Language School|
The Swedish Club of Houston has maintained a Swedish Language School for many years. It is the only source of Swedish language instruction in southeast Texas. The school began as a "back porch school" at the home of one of the Swedish Club's founders, and has grown to where it now holds classes at the IKEA store on IH-10 West at Antoine.
As student enrollment demands, the school offers classes at several levels. Instruction is by native speakers of Swedish, and the approach emphasizes a conversational approach since most persons wishing to learn Swedish want to be able to speak it when visiting Sweden.
Classes meet one evening a week, Monday or Tuesday (depending on level), from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The cost is modest, and varies according to the cost of materials, which come from Sweden. The school operates on a 15-week semester basis, with the first semester running from October to January, and the second from January to May. It is not possible to start as a beginner in January, but other levels will accomodate.
The Swedish Club is currently gauging interest in a language school for children; let us know if you have (or know of) any children who want to learn Swedish!
