About Swedish

• 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.

• The Swedish alphabet uses the 26 Latin letters, plus three additional: Å / å, Ä / ä, and Ö / ö.

Swedish, Basic

• Ten 30-minute lessons of spoken Swedish language instruction (the first ten Units of Pimsleur's 30-Unit Swedish Comprehensive Program). This course replaces our original Compact Swedish with new and expanded vocabulary, scenarios, grammar and structures.

• Essential grammar and vocabulary that teach you greetings, numbers, how to order food and drinks and to give and ask for directions. Learn to speak with near-native pronunciation.

• No mindless repetition! Converse with native speakers in natural (and useful!) conversations.

• Easy, fast, fun and effective language acquisition.

• Completely Audio - anytime, anywhere. No computer necessary! Unlike expensive software programs which tie learners to a computer, Pimsleur courses are available in CD or mp3 format to meet your needs.
