The Modern Languages Department teaches a variety of languages at all levels, from beginners to more advanced: French (level 1-5), German (1-5),
Italian (1-3), Mandarin (1-3) and Spanish (1-5). Please note that the language levels offered are dependent upon number of students who choose this elective.
In addition, our department also coordinates the teaching of a wide range of mother tongues as requested by our multicultural student community.
Our staff are all native teachers in their respective languages. They come from China, Colombia, Cuba, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and are all qualified teachers. Their experience and expertise has been gained through teaching in several countries as well as in Sweden.
The focus in all modern languages classes is on interaction and communication (spoken and written). A variety of tools are used to achieve this goal, from traditional study of literature, to analysis and production of contemporary audiovisual documents, via substantial use of IT-based resources. Trips are also regularly organised to stimulate the language learning process.
