A new course this fall will help non-Swedish speakers get their hunting license.
Mattias Wahle will be teaching the hunter safety course at the Gothenburg branch of Studiefrämjandet, a nationwide association that focuses on adult education.
To get a hunting license, people need to pass a written test as well as demonstrate they can safety handle and accurately fire a weapon.
Right now, there are many courses that teach hunting techniques and how to identify different wildlife to help people get their license. However, the course in Gothenburg, which begins in late August, be the first to be offered in English.
