It's a well-known wonder of nature that all Scandinavians emerge from the womb speaking flawless English, so such a course would be redundant.

That was my first reaction too - they all speak perfect English anyway, so why bother? But I can see that a reverse course would be nice. (and I'm sure they don't all actually speak flawless English!)

That may be true for alot of Swedes. But not all. Think about 12 year olds still learning English, and maybe a number of elderly Swedes. Also Sweden has huge population of immigrants/refugees from many countries who may speak very good Swedish (even as a second language, but have limited knowledge of English

It would be nice for a reverse tree for when we finish the Swedish for English speakers
