Learn Swedish on your device

I enjoyed my Swedish for Immigrants classes in Halmstad for no other reason than I met my first friends there. To this day we still get together when we can. We come from Vietnam, Indonesia, Germany, Poland, Spain and the US to name a few countries.  When we moved to Stockholm I found a great class where I also met more people. I managed to maintain a friendship with one woman from Nigeria. But life happens and sometimes you have to move your offline classes to your devices.

Enjoy the flexibility of setting your own schedule, and learning wherever you choose. You can do that with Pimsleur. Pimsleur Language Programs is a world leader in audio-based language acquisition with over 25 million satisfied customers and a track record spanning almost 50 years. #ad

Let’s disrupt money.

Let’s Disrupt Money from Ellevest #ad

Our society and institutions have long put us at a disadvantage with regards to money, leaving us at less than full equality: It will be 38 years until the wage gap closes for white women, 106 years for black women, and 230 years for Latina women. Women are 80% more likely than men to be impoverished during retirement. Only 6% of Fortune 500 companies have female CEOs. Companies led by teams of women receive less than 2.5% of venture capital funding, while those led by women of color get just 0.2%. — Source: Ellevest

More on #DisruptMoney and #MakeHerPayday coming soon.

 

“I want you to meet Ellevest because Stockholm Expat blog is super excited to be working with them to start this conversation about women and money, and we may receive compensation if you become an Ellevest client.”

*Ellevest clients must have a US bank account.
