Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open.

Culture and Education


Before coming to Sweden, I taught English and English-related university courses at various levels in the Czech Republic. My specialization and research interests include linguistics, namely pragmatics, language acquisition, and teaching English as a second language. In my recent research, I have focused on means of persuasion in religious discourse and teaching ESP (English for Specific Purposes), as well as ways of increasing the efficiency of the latter.

At Södertörns University, I am currently teaching courses in linguistics (chiefly discourse analysis), English language structure and didactics.

My favorite pastime activities are playing squash, flying model planes, playing piano, and ballroom dancing.
