Learning Swedish – The Cheap And Easy Way

Learn Swedish - Lär dig svenska

I’ve always been fascinated with this sleek and elegant language.

Luckily, there is an abundance of resources online to fast-forward a learner’s acquisition process.

As with any other language, I’d promote the following steps:

  1. Start with an introductory course and get to know the basic grammar and pronunciation
  2. Next, get a Swedish children’s book (e.g. this) and read it a couple of times using a dictionary
  3. Get some Swedish friends online and practice your conversation skills
  4. Watch a good Swedish film (e.g. Ondskan) – start slowly, Swedish pronunciation is the tricky part
  5. Spend some time in Sweden
  6. Get free Swedish books online and read them side-by-side with their English counterparts
  7. Listen to Swedish podcasts, watch Swedish news, watch Swedish TV channels

A quick list of resources:

Anyway, låt mig veta hur det går! :)
