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.

    Comments about Swedish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

    Love this product!!! I've been trying to learn Swedish over the last year with different phone apps and while I've learned some vocabulary I was never able to put it together to actually speak the language. Pimsleur somehow gives you the confidence in your knowledge and, for me, secures what I've learned in my memory. I'm almost finished with lesson 19 and I really feel confident in my skills. Just wish they would create more lessons past 30. Love this program.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Really would like this to continue past lesson 30. There isn't any other program that I can find that will teach me in the same way.

    Comments about Swedish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

    I use this product as an mp3 on my phone using the Pimsleur mobile app (it's free). I usually end up doing it while I'm at the gym getting my 30 minutes cardio in for the day. I sound like a crazy person to anyone else near me, but I don't care because I'm speaking Swedish! What's great about this is how mobile it is. Anywhere I have my phone (everywhere) I can learn some more. Really you only need to go through each lesson once, but I usually do it twice before moving on just to make sure I'm getting pronunciations right--Swedish is a little special and pronunciation is very important. The only thing I don't like is that I'm not learning what the words look like or how they are spelled. But hey, I'm speaking it!

    This worked really well and FAST. The repetition helped and it was very much like having a one-on-one instructor there. I liked how it gave you full speed conversations and then broke it down. This worked wonders for me.

      Comments about Swedish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

      I have used PIMSLEUR to learn French, Italian, Arabic and most recently Swedish. The courses as always are FIRST rate. Sadly (for me, anyway) Swedish is very difficult, harder for me than Arabic (although I do also speak Hebrew). Anyway...I did the first TEN lessons during the month before my departure to Sweden and it is really WONDERFUL to know at least a few words and phrases in a foreign land. Even if everyone speaks English around you it is a compliment to them and gives you one edge up on the experience. ONE PIECE OF ADVICE...Pimsleur suggests you listen to each lesson once and then go to the next lesson the next day. My experience is that it works BEST if I listen to each lesson FOUR or FIVE times over two to three days and THEN go on to the next lesson. Don't skip days, though. It definitely works and works beautifully!

        Comments about Swedish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

        I did a LOT of research before finding this system, and was pretty confident that it was the best on the market. I loved that I can buy the lessons for $20 at a clip - this relieves a lot of the guilt you have when you spend $500 for a system and then don't rush through it right away. I've done that in the past, and that guilt creates resistance that keeps me from ever getting past the first lesson. With this, I can take my time for minimal investment and I'm already seeing great results. The more I listen to the MP3s, the more confident I get, and the more I want to learn. And because I don't always have the extra cash to spare, I can learn at my own pace, without the buyers remorse. Can't wait to have my first conversation with a native. I can't believe how fast I'm picking this up. :)
