Swedish lunch at the department

We at the department and in Sweden in general are good at talking English, which means that someone who wants to learn our language rarely get a chance to practice. A lot of people have expressed a wish to talk and learn more Swedish but find it difficult. Ann-Britt came up with an idea about having Swedish lunches. We meet every Wednesday at 12 in the Lounge. These lunches are strictly for employees at the department of mathematics. Everyone from the department are welcome to participate, just e-mail Ann-Britt, annbritt@kth.se, and you will be added to the send list and get some more information.
