Managing day to day life with language for a non Swedish speaker

Dear all,

I am thinking of moving to Sweden for my higher studies and would like to know about day to day living with English language.

For the time being I do not know Swedish at all and I heard that locals would like if the expats speak in their own language even though they can manage English really well..

Would like if you can share your experience being in Sweden.

Highly appreciate your support.

Yes some people speak English as well but as you already mentioned it's generally not a preferred language.

In your experience how hard was it at the beginning to find your part time jobs etc?

I didn't study here but I have met a few people who have studied here. Its not easy to get part time work knowing just English. Some help is available from student bodies but its not assured.
