Swedish learning Links - Hi, ive noticed theres not many links available, at least not in an organised fashon, so im going to start this thread which can hopefully become sticky and people can add their links, because there are a tonne more, to create a good resource for people beginning in swedish:

[url][/url] - A great introduction to swedish, with pretty comprehensive grammer guide.

[url][/url] - Online news in Swedish, with option of audio narration you can control the speed of.

[url][/url] - Another good beginners course in swedish, with audio pronounciation and excercises.

[url]http://www.verbix.c../../languages/swedish.shtml#Verbix[/url] - Handy tool, you enter the infinitive, and it conjugates for you. easy.

[url][/url] - How to pronounce the swedish sounds and numbers. Lots of fun to be had by watching the image guides on how to shape your lips for correct pronounciation.

[url][/url] - Online Swedish to English dictionary - Enough said.

[url][/url] A page designed to help little people learn Swedish, but also for people that just like pretty pictures.

[url][/url] - Another good picture-learning resource. Scanned straight out of a book. Not sure if legal, but damn handy.

[url][/url] - Another good beginners course in swedish, with audio pronounciation and excercises.

- oops, sorry i didnt see that thread at all! I was just assuming if there was one allready it would have been sticky and there at the top to add to. But if you want we can combine them to make a better list.
betaThursday 31st of March 2005 02:57:49 AM
- Ok, i combined all the links, i havnt edited anything obviously because its your work, but if your happy with it we can take out the doubles and so on, make it look good :)
HoogardThursday 31st of March 2005 05:13:15 AM
- No offense taken. Sure let's use yours. The reason it was not sticky is cause no moderator is around lol.

But i'll gladly push over the responsibility on you to put together and maintain this list hehe :) Good work.

*Leans back and takes it easy :D
betaThursday 31st of March 2005 05:58:24 PM
- I was meaning everyone will be maintaining the list :) thats what i am hoping for, for people to add new ones to the thread as they find them. Its a decent start now.
HoogardThursday 31st of March 2005 08:21:43 PM
- Of course. But it's still you who will have to edit the first post hehe :)

- Don't forget the almighty SAOB, från A till Talkumera:

(Btw, "talkumera" means "bestrew with talcum". They have worked on it since the 18:th century, but have hereto only come this far.)

- Those are some really great links! Keep them coming!

- Teup's list added with permission, thanks a lot!
TeupMonday 11th of April 2005 08:15:37 PM
- Yay :) I hope I can complete it soon...

Another very good link (if it hasn't been mentioned yet),

Swedish online radio, perhaps the best online radio site in the world, so students of Swedish are really lucky :) Has a couple of channels where they talk and talk most of the time, and also previous broadcasts are available, so you can check over and over again when you hear something peculiar :)

- Here's a page that covers swedish accents all across the country and some of the variants in finland too.

You can listen to them and read "Phrases" hehe :)
