A friend recently asked me if I could provide some online resources for learning Swedish. Rather than just provide my friend with an email containing several links, I thought it might be a good idea to list some resources here on 2sweden4love so that you can all enjoy.
Here we go:
Digitalasparet.se: A great resource which includes dictionaries, news, media, etc… Also see the graph at the right hand side of the page for A1- C (Beginners thru advanced levels) for specific lessons.
My Languages – Swedish: An audio listing of Swedish numbers, vocabulary, phases, and grammar.
Handelshögskolan i Stockholm: A brief presentation of Swedish.
Swedish 101: Learn Swedish Online
And of course, if any of you out there have any great resources please feel free to add them in the comments section below.
