Description

Includes 16 lessons on 8 CDs

Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program.

This course includes Lessons 1-16 from the Swedish Level 1 Program - 8 hours of audio-only effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. Topics include: greetings, numbers, meals, shopping, telling time, scheduling activities, and asking and giving directions. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Swedish.

Reading instruction begins in Lesson 11 to provide you with an introduction to reading Swedish. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with Swedish pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet is included with your download.

The Swedish Language
Swedish is an Indo-European language that belongs to the North Germanic branch of the Germanic languages, all of which derive from Old Norse. This course teaches rikssvenska (sometimes referred to as Standard Swedish) as spoken in and around the capital region of Stockholm. Swedish is spoken by approximately 10 million people, mostly in Sweden and parts of Finland. Norwegian and Swedish are considered mutually intelligible, with Danish also being very similar.

Tech Talk
- CDs are formatted for playing in all CD players, including car players, and users can copy files for use in iTunes or Windows Media Player.

    Comments about Swedish, Conversational:

    I have tried for years to learn Swedish, but this course had me speaking in no time. It also helped to build my confidence. The only thing I would change is the reading, it would be handy to have English translation of the words for reference. I highly recommend this product!

      Comments about Swedish, Conversational:

      Very easy to use nothing to download, pop in the cd and you're off to the races. This is my third language after French and Arabic. What is great is that I can listen to a lesson several times until comfortable with it and then move on at my own pace. Since visuals are not important it is like learning a language like we do with our native tongues as babies and small children before we can read, by just listening and mimicking. It's the best & good luck to all.

      Comments about Swedish, Conversational:

      My husband is a native Swede and I lived in Sweden 12 years and speak Swedish fluently so we both wanted our 13yo son to learn some Swedish before we visit this Xmas. We bought this program after ds had completed 2 levels of another program (which is about 2 years) and he still could not speak any Swedish and understood very very little. Immediately with Pimsleur, I saw and heard that ds was using the language correctly and his accent was improved greatly. He is only up to lesson 7 and he is already much more fluent. Thank you.

      Comments about Swedish, Conversational:

      I haven't spent as much time as I would have liked with the product. I would have liked to put it on my MP3 so that I could take it with me and learn while travelling. I also would like to see the lesson written. I know this isn't the way it is taught by Primsleur, but sometimes it helps me retain the information if I see it written out. I am still enjoying the lessons and if I could find a deal on the product I would buy more lessons in the series.
