Participating in the activities organised by the municipality or various associations gives you the opportunity to get to know new people and to practise your Swedish.
Municipalities and associations sometimes arrange activities for recent arrivals, refugees and immigrants in order to make it easier for them to get into Swedish society. Contact your municipality or search on its website to see what is available in your municipality.
Many municipalities and voluntary organisations are involved in helping newly arrived refugees and immigrants come into contact with Swedes. The names of these activities vary: språkvän (language friend), flyktingguide (refugee guide), fadder (sponsor, coach), mentor or kompis (buddy).
