I saw the "Intensive Studies in Swedish" offered online by SIFA in Stockholm. This sounds ideal but I am not in the Stockholm municipality and it lists that as a requirement. I am currently on Gotland - but we hope to move once we find a suitable house around one of the larger cities. Can anyone recommend anything other than SFI? I am happy to pay for a good program that is online (and ideally in person when this virus nonsense ends)

I recently moved to Sweden from the US - great timing, no? I am married to a Swede and have been studying Swedish on my own for a while now. I am in this weird situation where I know thousands of Swedish words, can read l?ttl?st novels/8sidor, understand much of what is said to me BUT I can't construct a sentence when trying to speak and my understanding of grammar is pretty weak. Would love to use the covid restrictions as a good time to accelerate my learning.

My wife's English is probably better than mine... but neither of us seem to be able to sort the "student/teacher" thing out.
