Learn to Speak and Understand Swedish with Pimsleur Language Programs

(Book #1 of Basic)
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.

About the Author

Pimsleur

Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method based on two key principles: the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training that he called “Graduated Interval Recall.” This Method has been applied to the many levels and languages of the Pimsleur Programs.
