3.0 out of 5 stars Good for vocabulary but not speaking October 18, 1999
Format:Audio Cassette
I started learning Swedish phrases through reading this book but come to find out when I had a real Swede tutor me later on that the pronunciation of the words and phrases in the book were mostly wrong. It is a good book to learn quick vocabulary and phrases but be sure to learn the correct pronunciation first!

4.0 out of 5 stars Usable Pronunciation Guide in Book May 31, 2001
Format:Audio Cassette
Swedish is a very difficult language for Americans to pronounce. It's a double tone language. In other words, you often stress more than one syllable in the same word. This sounds kinda silly to English speakers. You simply cannot look at this book (or any book) and try to speak Swedish. What is good about this book is the pronuniation guide that appears beside each word. This makes it possible that you won't sound silly every time you try to speak Swedish. Once you have been in Sweden and listened to the way they speak, you can use this book's pronunication guides and try to immitate the Swedes.

But, this book is really only for travelers, and travelers don't need to speak Swedish. Most Swedes speak English very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit out of date but helpful October 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This book/cassette is a bit dated, with too much use of the polite form and of more formal phrases. Nonetheless, a booklet plus a cassette is the best way to become familiar with a language on your own. The booklet covers most situations quite well. The cassette is difficult to follow without the book, so drivers beware!
I've read reviews of this and other Swedish introductions that say the pronounciation is wrong. The truth is that pronouciation varies, depending where in Sweden you are. The Swedes don't volunteer this information, so it's easy to get confused. The good news is that it's difficult to pronouce something so horribly that you won't be understood, so just give it a try and learn!

4.0 out of 5 stars A husband who wants to reconnect with his roots October 20, 2011

My husband wanted to have this book and actually he likes it because he wanted to reconnect with his roots. He is learning fast sentences and unusual words. It's easy understanding book for this difficult language.
