We have the best students in the world!
This was our second time (level B1) at Maria Laopodis' really fabulous Swedish language school "Communicera". We also have lessons at a language school in Cologne, but Maria tops everything! Her lessons are structured first-class, are a lot of fun and her enthusiasm is contagious - a real recommendation! A&D, Vacation+Swedish, Malmö September 2023
It's amazing what you can learn in one week with so much fun! The course is varied, provides a sound grammatical basis and skillfully leads to impressive listening, reading and language comprehension. I was amazed at myself at the end of the week how I could talk to Swedes. Julia, Groupcourse, Malmö August, 2023
I gained a lot from the course. Many, many thanks! Petchon is a very good teacher.Ute, A1 - A1.2 One-to-One 2 Weeks Vactaion + Swedish, Online, July 2023
Tiden i Malmö var väldigt trevlig. Jag har haft många tillfällen att prata med Phetchon.
Hon hittade intressanta texter som jag kunde använda för att förbättra min svenska. Tiden gick alltid väldigt fort. Jag gillade också Malmö. Jag måste definitivt komma tillbaka och sedan utforska staden på cykel. Jag har inte sett allt än. Tack för en härlig tid. Daniel, B1, 2 Weeks, One-to-One, Malmö July 2023
1 week language course with Maria is highly recommended!
Maria teaches really well; she responds to each individual; I learned an incredible amount (especially speaking freely) and didn't want to stop with the course. In addition to her professional competence, she is so likeable, open and has a lot of good energy. Thank you so much for that!!! I hope to see you again! Sarah, Groupcourse, Malmö June 2023
What a week! The 5 days of intensive Swedish course flew by. I learned so much - with fun and good humour! Thank you Maria, you are super! Tack så mycket för allt. I will be back! Claudia, A1.2 Allgäu, One-to-One May 2023
The Swedish classes were a real oasis of joy and motivation for me during the dark and cold winter weeks! Peter, Online course 2023
I want to thank you so much for this fantastic week. I learnt a lot in a very nice and friendly atmosphere. The week has definitely motivated me to continue learning Swedish. I am planning to do another course with you - then maybe B1; either online or in person, we will see. Many greetings to Annika. She did an excellent job guiding us through this fantastic week. A holiday that will remain in our best memories for a long time. Thomas, Munich, Groupcourse A2, 2023
Thanks to Sandra! It was fantastic! A perfect mix of useful vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation training, information about Sweden and nice company, Rainer, Online Course 2023
Learning Swedish with Maria means " Just do it". Cordial, with a lot of humour and expertise. The focus is on communication, talking to each other and exchanging ideas about all kinds of things - and from the very first minute (almost) exclusively in Swedish. Of course it's not possible without learning vocabulary and grammar. But many things simply open up in conversation. In short: A clear recommendation for everyone who wants to talk to more than just the moose on their next holiday in Sweden / Christa, Munich, One-to-One Online, since January 2021
I wanted to learn Swedish and found a course at Communicera. I was quickly and warmly welcomed and even before we met for the first time, I received various information about the course. I decided to do 2 consecutive weeks, both because I could use it as educational leave and because I had the time and inclination. It was a great experience, with new acquaintances, nice course mates and intensive and good teaching in small groups. Maria made an effort to accommodate everyone's level, as our Swedish skills were different. I am very satisfied with the results of the last two weeks. I can only recommend Communicera! Thank you very much! Majbrit Thrane, A1 - A2, Feb - March 2023
Excellent and very efficient language course, very committed teacher, had a lot of fun! /C.W, educational leave B1, Sept 2022
Hi everyone, the last two weeks I have started learning Swedish properly. It has been a great experience and I now want to build on the language. I want to thank María and Annika for their great work. The learning was personal and individual. It doesn't get any better than that. / Pascal, A2 Hamburg Feb 2022
The language course in Malmö was a unique experience! It was a lot of fun!!!! Maria leads the courses with heart and soul!!!! A fantastic teacher! I can really recommend the courses! / Frank Meyland, A1 - A2 2 v Bildungsurlaub Oct 2022
I don't think I have ever spoken as much Swedish on a course as I did this week. Annika is a very competent teacher. Thank you again! /Andrea, Berlin Bildungsurlaub A1.2, April 2022
In the last two weeks I was on educational leave. I used this time to learn Swedish and where better to learn a language than in the country where you speak it. Learning a language in a country always gives you an insight into the country and the culture. I would like to thank María Laopodis, my teacher, who always explained patiently. The beginning is made, now I will continue learning Swedish in Germany. I am very grateful for the time and the experiences. /Sebastian, Hamburg, A2, Jan - Feb 2022
I got to spend two full weeks on educational leave with Maria and Simon in Malmö. And since no one else wanted to learn the beautiful Swedish language during this period - all by myself too! Yes, as a beginner, I started pretty much from scratch - so I booked an A1 course. I had two really good weeks, during which I laughed a lot and had a lot of fun, but after all, I also learnt an enormous amount, and not only about the language. You are warmly welcomed here, almost like a family, and you really enjoy learning. Maria really has a sense of how to get the best out of you, and she organises the lessons in this way and also takes your own interests into account. It was also nice to have a lesson day with Simon, where I finally learnt to swear in Swedish; he can also give you the perspective of an expat from Munich and speaks a lot of Swedish! So if you want to laugh a lot in a relaxed atmosphere with nice and good teachers and learn a lot at the same time - then you should definitely go to this language school in Sweden! / Jan Wittmer, A1 + A1.2 Lower Saxony March 2022
I booked 2 weeks of language lessons at Communicate with Maria in August 2021. I was completely overwhelmed by the enthusiasm, energy and commitment with which Maria taught us the Swedish language. The individual lessons during the last week were so intense and stimulating that, thanks to her competence as a language teacher and her helpfulness regarding questions about important everyday Swedish topics, I now have a very good basis for realising my move from Germany to Sweden. Thanks again for the great time! / Inge Kuckartz, A1 - A2 August 2021
The special thing about Maria's way of teaching is that she especially encourages you - and knows when to challenge you. For example, some time ago she sent me a Swedish newspaper article about the elections in Germany at that time, with comprehension and grammar exercises and a request: "Explain to me what is happening!". At that time it was a big challenge for me and really took me out of my comfort zone. And then a lot changed in a short time: I could write and speak much more freely in Swedish, quickly becoming more and more confident. I was so confident that I dared to take the Tisus certificate - and passed it. / Wolfram Utz, Dortmund, A1 - C1 Online 2018-2020
I took a group course with Maria and after a short time my Swedish improved considerably. It was very much about speaking and having fun. As Maria has lived in both Germany and Sweden, the differences between the countries have always been a fruitful and interesting topic. Maria always used additional teaching material from current sources (newspapers/internet/TV), which made the course lively and exciting./Sabine, Munich A2 - B2, 2020
I have never had so much fun learning a new language, and even after all these years I still remember my first "lektion"... it has been a wonderful start into my journey of learning a lot about the Swedish language, country and culture. If you ever thought (or made the experience) that learning grammar and vocabulary is a pain, try a lesson with Maria! Do not only broaden your skills and horizon, but also get to know a bright, brilliant person! / Brigitte Muench, Switzerland, One-to-One 2020
