An exchange student to Sweden

Hello If there isn't any problems I will be in Sweden as an exchange student next year spring term. I've started to Swedish course of Duolingo and I like it. I know almost every swede knows English and I shouldn't be worry about communication problems but I want to learn this language. Do you have any advice for me ? About Swedish ? About Sweden ?

It will depend on where you come from. If Swedes notice you're from an English speaking country then they will very likely speak English to you. I had American friends living in Sweden. Despite they could speak fluent Swedish I noticed many times many Swedes spoke English back to them. Just keep speaking Swedish and if you become fluent in Swedish and people keep speaking English, just keep speaking Swedish and tell them off in Swedish if they keep speaking English and ask them why they change the language.

Thank you for your reply. Interesting, Swedes prefer speaking english to foreigners huh ? This will make hard to practice.

Well, especially to people from English speaking countries.
