Language cafes in Swedish for employees
If you are employed at KTH and already know a fair amount of Swedish, you can improve your language proficiency by going to one of the language cafés offered on the main KTH Campus and in Kista. The cafés are for employees who understand most of what they hear and read but need more opportunities to speak Swedish. You should be able to handle basic conversations without any problems, but want to practice speaking about more complex subjects.
Språkcafé i olika språk

KTH:s språkcaféer i olika språk erbjuds från och med vecka 37 till vecka 49 på biblioteket.
Presentation Skills for Researchers
The ability to present one’s research to various target groups, both within and outside the academic sphere, is an essential skill for all researchers. This course provides KTH researchers with the tools needed to create effective, clear, and audience-adapted presentations.
