Studying languages, finding a suitable course or beginning independent studies can seem daunting at times. Tutoring is available for studies in Swedish, Finnish for Swedish-speakers, English, German, Russian, Spanish, Italian and French. Teacher tutors are Language Centre teachers who have weekly drop-in office hours during the academic terms. You can ask the tutors about language courses, learning materials, studying techniques, grammar and independent-study courses. Tutoring is especially recommended for students studying languages independently.
You can discuss any language-related issue with the teacher tutors. For example, you may wonder what type of studying a particular course entails, or how studies are organised in a German-speaking country. One student may have come back to the University after a long break, while another may feel insecure speaking a particular language. Tutors can assist students with written assignments, help them select online materials and provide advice relating to the curriculum. Teacher tutors can also assess your proficiency level and help you evaluate yourself.
Language studies can also be associated with fear or negative experiences. Students with foreign language anxiety, learning disabilities or general anxiety should contact a tutor in person or via email. Studying languages should feel safe. Teacher tutors will try to find a solution that will enable every student to complete the required language and communication studies.
