Pls anyone If you could tell me which is best school for SFI in Helsingborg? I just moved here and will start my SFI in August and will be begin in Level C.

They have gave me a paper to choose the school that I want but I honestly have no idea which one is the good...
( I've been told that I can't change school in until I finish with my SFI... and That would be something like 600 hours to go... So all I want is just to be in a nice classroom environment... you know with classmates, teachers and all...

Below are the list of school

- Eductus
- Komvux Karnan
- Lernia
- Merit
- N.K. Data Center
- Competens

Any idea?

Tack sa mycket!

I don't know about Helsingbirg specifically but in general Folkuniversitet has a very good reputation for beginner level Swedish - many people take their classes privately and pay 1000s of kronors to do so

I am in the same situation as you and I have to choose one school out of the same selection of schools. I am just wondering which one you chose in the end and how you are finding it so far?

Thank you!

Oh forgot to add I cannot go to the Folkuniversitetet as they do not do evening classes, so this one is not an option!

I am also in the same situation. I am thinking of going for folkuniversitet or nk datacenter. Any thoughts? I am starting at the sfi 3 level and I need to learn fast. I am a nurse and I cannot license here until I reach a level b2. Any idea on the school that will offer me the fastest most immersion-like education? My options are the same at the others.

I decided to go for Komvux Karnan after some advice from people who work in the area of aiding people learn Swedish. I have heard good reviews of NK Datacentre from one person who attended SFI there. But I asked 3 people independently and they said Komvux Karnan so ultimately I selected that one. I have yet to start but as soon as I do I will let you know how it is but I think you will have already selected one!

Good Luck!
