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.

Today was a milestone day. After ten days (or more) of preparing my residence application, I was finally able to slip the application, several other forms, photographs proving Tapi and I know each other, passport photos, essays, receipts and a cover letter into the $30 FedEx envelop guaranteeing delivery by 10:30am tomorrow at the Swedish Embassy. The simply act of mailing these documents proved to be a heady experience making me feel almost as if I have one foot in the US and another in Sweden. I spent the rest of the afternoon feeling rather dizzy.
Before a person can move to Sweden, a residence permit must be obtained from Sweden’s Migrationsverket. The application and it’s accompanying forms may be downloaded from the Swedish Embassy in Washington D.C. and a personal interview will be conducted. There are several ways a person can obtain a residence permit. You can do so if you are someone who will be working in Sweden as an employee, if you are a student, starting a business, an au pair, or if you are a spouse, cohabitant or child of a primary applicant. My permit is based on a family or personal connection so there’s a special app for that.Read More»
