Ord och terminologi är lätt att lära sig – men hur får man det till ett språk?

Att lära sig att kommunicera på ett nytt språk i professionella sammanhang kan innebära en stor utmaning – inte minst i akademiska sammanhang. Det vet Kathrin Kaufhold, lektor och forskare i lingvistik på Stockholms universitet, som själv använder mestadels engelska men också svenska som arbetsspråk.

Do you need a study buddy?

Getting a buddy is a smart thing to do. You make new friends, you get someone to help you with questions and concerns, and someone to contact if you want to know more about Stockholm. It is also a great way to learn basic language skills.
