How to learn Swedish ( Language ) - The Free Internet Resources for Learning Swedish (Svenska)

Somthing about Sweden and Swedish

 

Sweden, the 3rd largest European country, is located in Northern part of Europe. It is one of the Nordic countries situated on Scandinavian Peninsula. Swedish or Svenska (as is called in Swedish) is national language of Sweden. It is not only spoken in Sweden, but also in some parts of Norway as well, due to its resemblance with other Nordic Languages. It is also being understood neighboring countries.

Weather of Sweden is great specially in summer ( Well if you are a snow-savvy, then I would also recommend to go there in winter as well). Swedes are really cool minded, extremely helping and peace loving persons, although a bit conservative at first instance. They show a great love and true heartedness toward their culture and their language. They can understand English also, but prefer to be talked in Swedish. So if you are planning to go to Sweden either due to education, business, job or just for a short visit as a tourists. It is highly recommended to have at least some Swedish Language skills.

Greetings,

I would like to suggest a section of my website as a link for inclusion on your site. I have several interactive games for learning Swedish, with a few more pending assistance from a translator available on my website at

http://www.digitaldialects.com/Swedish.htm

You might call the link something like 'Digital Dialects Swedish Games’ or whatever you wish. A usual description might be 'Interactive games for learning the Swedish language'.

Kind regards

Craig Gibson

Note: there are free to use online games for learning 60 languages on the Digital Dialects Website: www.digitaldialects.com

I'm glad I found this list. Tack! :)

Loecsen looks like a perfect resource for what I'm doing. I've made a "mini-goal" of learning 100 of the most common Swedish words in 4 weeks as part of my overall goal of learning conversational Swedish in 6 months.

I have a blog to document how successfully my learning techniques are (or not as the case may be) working. You can find regular updates for it here: http://www.howtolearnswedish.co.uk

Thanks again for the help with pronunciation
