hi there, i'm Ira, i am in gothenburg too, interested in making friends. if you are interested, just give me a hola!

by the way, it's Ira again, this is my email: trickyire[at]yahoo.com    let's meet up then!

Have you guys met? Lets meet up some time this weekend? Is anybody up for that?

One of the best ways to make friends is go to school and take Swedish language lessons (SFI). That's how I made friends. Of course they aren't Swedish friends but immigrants and expats like us. Making Swedish friends is probably much harder. I haven't a clue where to start...

I am srilankan and i am looking business partner from gothernburg in sweden

Im a Swede who lived in many different countries and I know how hard it can be to enter a new culture and country. If you need advice, someone to talk to or just hang out let me know.

Hello everyone,

I moved in Goteborg two weeks ago and I am here for 5 months! I came with a friend and we are willing to discover the city and meet new people!
Feel free to contact me! :)

Best,

Fadila

Welcome, Fadila! Enjoy  GBG ! :)

There are occasional courses in English if you want to practice a hobby or learn something new; look under Studieförbund and google Sensus, Medborgarskolan, Studiefrämjandet etc. I just checked Sensus and they have Chinese cooking in Engl. and Storytelling.

There is also en expat seminar running in Feb March; family-lab.se/29e_februari_goteborg_expat_in_sweden_0900_-_1200.asp

This could be good ways to find friends; maybe not Swedish but friends in a similar situation, and also eager to make new friends.

hey guys! been here in gothenburg for almost 2 years but the few people i know are 98% swedish. would be nice to meet some other fellow aussies,kiwis or from other english speaking countries.
cheers :D
