Learning Swedish with our course

Let us explain how we have intended this course to be used. Listen to each unit attentively. Make sure that you focus on listening and speaking Swedish. There is a Swedish transcript on the video screen, as well a PDF transcript in Swedish and English. Feel free to consult the transcript at any time, but don’t get stuck there. The audio is key for you in learning Swedish. The idea is to learn intuitively, so don’t get hung up on details and don’t worry if you don’t get everything right at once – nobody does. Listen to the same content many times, until you feel comfortable in answering the questions, before you proceed to the next story. This will make your Swedish more intuitive. Try to get used to learning Swedish a little every day, it’s a lot better than cramming many hours once a week. And most importantly – don’t be afraid to make mistakes, it’s part of the learning process!
