IB Swedish


Do you want to take Swedish A as a part of your IB Diploma?

Do you live outside Sweden?

At Global Svenska Plus (GSP) you will find the best tutors as well as information about the IB programme in general with a focus on Swedish as an IB subject.

We partner with a growing number IB schools in Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America. Check out the list! Maybe there are GSP Swedish students at an IB world school close to you?

IB Swedish A

The IB programme encourages students to develop their mother tongue, even when courses in their language are not offered at their school.

Our “IB Swedish A” course follows the syllabus for “IB Language A Literature School Supported Self Taught.” All one-on-one students have a personal course outline, made in close cooperation with your IB school. If you want to have a mix of group tutoring (3-4 students) and one-one-one tutoring, you follow our standard course outline for that time zone. Learn more

The course is distributed over one or two academic years and throughout the course, our teachers give personal feedback to the student on all their work.

In close consultation with your school, GSP can also provide a ‘made-to-measure’ accelerated programme. This is often necessary if you are a student at a school with November exams, but it can also be the case for transfer students. Contact us for more information.

A piece of advice…

In order to succeed in Swedish A Literature we recommend students set aside at least six hours a week on average.

Swedish Pre-IB

In the Pre-IB Course we work primarily on Swedish vocabulary and academic writing to prepare students for IB Swedish A. This course also provides a fundamental history of Swedish literature. Lessons are offered one-on-one, or in a group once a week.

Our Swedish Pre-IB course can often be taught within the framework of “Mother Tongue Programmes” in grade 9 and 10 at international schools. Do not hesitate to contact us if you want to know more about this .

IB Swedish B

Obtaining an IB Diploma requires a lot of work. Sometimes unexpected difficulties arise. Have you started a Swedish A Self Taught course and found it too challenging? In this case, Swedish has become a second language, a “Language B.”

The IB Coordinator often finds good solutions at school when challenges occur. But not always. Sometimes a custom solution is needed. Do not hesitate to contact us at GSP for advice.
