About us, Mother Tongue Center

The mother tongue center offers mother tongue support and mother tongue education to children and adolescents from families where at least one of the parents has a mother tongue other than Swedish and this language is used in the home.

For these students, the mother tongue is a foundation for learning and is an important link between their lives and the school. In addition, it is a tool that can be used in knowledge acquisition. The mother tongue is also of great importance to the identity and self-esteem of these students.


The minimum requirement for a group to start is five students. In some cases, the students will be grouped with others from another school and the lesson may take place at the other school. In cases of illness, it is the parent's responsibility to inform the mother tongue teacher that the student will not attend school.
