Learning English at KTH

The courses combine a variety of enjoyable and valuable communication activities with the use of authentic material. This material will be used to help further your understanding of current affairs in the fields of science and technology and, as you work in groups with people from different parts of the world, you will hopefully be inspired to use your improved English in new and exciting ways.

Your progress will be assessed continuously and your English will be corrected systematically, with an emphasis on correct English and effective, appropriate communication for real situations.

Contact your study advisor or international coordinator today to find out if you can take an English course with us.
