Seminar with Hedda Söderlundh
In April 2012, Hedda Söderlundh visited CIP and gave a presentation on her thesis ’International universities – local language choices. On spoken Swedish in english-medium course environments’.
Date: Monday 23 April 2012
The thesis deals with the use of spoken Swedish on six English-medium university courses in Sweden. The courses are taken by both Swedish and foreign students, with English as the common language of instruction. The aim of the study is to describe and understand the oral use of Swedish, by students in particular, in the type of linguistic environment that arises when English is the medium of instruction.
