NordicSom’s Hallå! project’s sub project ”Svenska för invandrare” aims at promoting interest in learning and using Swedish among students with immigration background who go to Finnish schools. The target group also gets information of the benefits of Swedish proficiency in working life and society.
In the project so called immigrant ambassadors are trained to visit schools to promote using Swedish. As results we are anticipating, in addition to increased interest among the target group in learning and using Swedish, improved integrity and equality in leaning Swedish. To meet the goals we are using an innovative and inspiring approach to the project theme.
NordicSom is implementing Svenska för invandrare school visits in cooperation with Svenska nu. Immigrant ambassadors promote Swedish during their school visits by telling about their own positive experience about learning Swedish.
Among immigrant youth studying Swedish is not necessarily seen from the point of view of the future possibilities it provides. Therefore it is important that they are encouraged to learn the language as part of their own personal skills development.
Ambassadors are available for visits in Helsinki region and also in Lahti region. For more information and booking a visit to your school please write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
