How to learn Swedish by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!

We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for instance, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day.
It will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
And once your holidays have begun, in Stockholm, in Umeå, or elsewhere, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.

Why speak Swedish while traveling?

From Stieg Larsson's engaging literature, to Ingmar Bergman's metaphysical cinema, the reasons for learning Swedish are many. Voted the most democratic country in the world in 2008, and the greenest in 2014, Sweden is globally recognized for the quality of life of its inhabitants, ranking 14th place in 2014 in terms of HDI. 
Recognized also as an example of peace and respect for human rights, the country is the seat of the nomination and awarding of the Nobel Prize. After all, Sweden is the home of other great names in science and culture, such as the group ABBA, Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman, Anders Celsius and Alfred Nobel. 

An open window to Scandinavian culture

Spoken by more than 10 million people, Swedish is a Scandinavian language that has mutual intelligibility with Danish and Norwegian, and has the status of an official language in Sweden as well as in Finland.

Make a success of your stay in Sweden

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.

How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?

Swedish is a language with a pitch accent, which distinguishes two tones (acute and grave) which are responsible for the differentiation of certain homographs. 
Prosody, as well as the pronunciation of certain sounds like /r/, are among the elements that mark the difference between dialects. Counting 18 consonants and 18 vowels, half of which are short and half of which are long, the language of Larsson has 29 letters, including å, ž and š. 
We invite you to listen to the pronunciation of the letters by clicking on the following link: Swedish alphabet with audio.
