Swedish in the gaming world

March 9, 2016 5:07 pm Published by

ComeOn! is a gaming company that offers sports betting and casino games. The company is based in Malta and has a development office in Stockholm. It is a fast growing company with an enthusiastic, international staff. Some of the best developers from around the world transfer to the Stockholm ComeOn! office to work. The corporate language for employees is English. However, ComeOn! offers all of its employees basic Swedish courses with Upgrades:

”Offering Swedish language courses is a part of the Swedish experience. When employees have the basics in Swedish, they are able to more easily integrate into Swedish society and have better contact with their Swedish colleagues.”

–Annie Johnsson from ComeOn!

At Upgrades, we are seeing more and more companies that choose to include Swedish training as a part of the company’s benefits package. Despite that English may be the corporate language, knowing a bit Swedish is very important in order to enjoy living and working in Sweden. With a basic knowledge in Swedish, employees are more easily integrated into Swedish society. Companies notice that the employees are happier, they stay in Sweden longer and have a more enhanced interaction with their colleagues in the workplace.

Upgrades has worked with ComeOn! for nearly two years. We now have three groups with different ability levels that work together with our fantastic Swedish coach, Anna-Maria.

”The best part of working with ComeOn! is the mixture of the groups and their enthusiastic pace!”

–Anna-Maria from Upgrades

New for this year, we have launched our “Welcome to Swedish” course. In addition to basic language skills, this course introduces Swedish culture and everyday life, such as coffee breaks, winter darkness, summer light and much more!

We wish ComeOn! and Anna-Maria the best of luck!
