I am not sure about here in Sweden, but if it is like anything similar in the States, there should be culinary schools which will also provide "managerial" skills for different branches of the culinary industry including hotels. Search on the web for schools around Stockholm and ask then for specific courses.
Also through co-worker experience of mine, there are poeple who have "worked their way up" through the ranks of hotel services and with their level of ambition, received either the jobs or recomendations for a proper education. It depends on your motivation, time frame and availability of resources around you.
Some hotels, if they see a potential, will also provide you with language training.
If money is not an issue for you, you can take private language classes in any number of language schools in Stockholm that will help you with building your vocabulary specifically for what you are aiming for in your career. Places like Berlitz, though pricy, will give you a very high quality education for your money and for your requirements.

Good luck

Getting a job is very difficult.

Foreign Students are allowed to work full time. No restrictions.

You will only be issued a RP if you can submit financial docusments for entire duration of study.

For e.g. If you got accepted for 2 year Masters Program you need to submit bank statement with 160,000kr in it. (8000kr x 20 months)
