When I was 12 years old I decided that I wanted to learn Swedish. Since Swedish was going to be my first foreign language and I was learning it by myself, I figured that I should spend my money wisely and only buy a few items. Along with a Swedish-English/engelsk-svensk Dictionary and a book on conjugating Swedish verbs, I bought this. I'd say that if I had to choose only one of those three items to buy, it would be this one because it explained the grammar of all sorts in a manner that even a 12-year-old could understand.. When first I decided that I wanted to learn Swedish I read up on it and learned a bit about its rules. I was especially daunted by the prospect of learning the definite and plural forms of the word, which confused me to no end. However when I read this book I understood it perfectly, along with other things that confused me, like "rolig", "roligt", and "roliga", for example.
I have had this book for a little over one year, and I have read it through, and still go back sometimes to refresh myself. I must say that I do not regret buying this book!
(By the way, its size made it perfect for carrying around---many a morning before school I spent reading this book throughout last year.)
My only woe is that they do not have the same book for Finnish..!
for a long time. It is so well put together. It's clear and concise
and really does teach you the essential rules of Swedish grammar
by explaining things and then giving examples. You can open it up
whenever you have even just a few minutes to spare, and you will learn
something new every time.
When you go from curiosity about a language to beginning to study it
seriously, you need good reference books like this. These days the
internet is very helpful for doing research on just about anything,
and there's a lot of good sites that help with language learning,
but good luck finding this kind of information there. This book will
give you the basic framework to understand how sentences are put together
and will take you past memorizing words and phrases. It will teach
you what you need to know to begin communicating in the language,
and will nicely fill in the gaps of your knowledge of Swedish from
If you want to learn Swedish, you simply cannot go wrong with this book!
