I'm trying to learn basic Swedish as soon as possible. I downloaded this computer program. So basically what am I getting into? Is it a very hard language to pick up? I've been taking spainish in school for over 3 years and I still suck miserably at it even though I have a 90 percent. Also once I learn Swedish, can I easily pick up Norwegian? Thanks I plan on living in Europe someday.

Why the hell would anyone want to learn swedish? It's boring, complicated and hardly anyone uses it. It's more difficult than spanish so if you still suck at that after 3 years I wouldn't get your hopes up on learning swedish anytime soon.

Jag kan tala svenska, och ja, det är inte mitt första språk, jag plockade upp ett par år tillbaka, sitt ganska svårt att nå ner rakt.
Poop.


Yes, poop.

It's a North Germanic language so it's about as close to English as you can get unless you want to learn German or Frisian. You should find it easy. Although I've never tried so I don't know personally.

I speak swedish, well, I am UG's Swedish Law Man.

English is my first language though. I picked swedish up within 6 months I think. Its pretty easy if you get some help and read books etc. Also try watching films/tv programs in English but with Swedish subtitles or vice versa, its a great way of expanding your vocab and learning expressions and spelling.

Good luck, btw, its worth it for the women when you get here!

I talk Swedish. It's easy to learn english if you talk swedish, dunno about the opposite way.

If you can talk Swedish, you can talk norwegian. Basically the same language, just with another accent and a few different words. Hell, I don't even need subtitles when hearing norwegian.
#26
i hear its not too bad

the nouns, advectives and verbs are arranged in sentences the same as english, whereas in french for example direct translations come out as "the man old" instead of "the old man" if you get me
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Women don't give a fuck if you can speak their language. The whole "foreigner" thing is more exciting than hearing the same language they hear every day.

If a french woman came here and tried to speak swedish I'd just slap her over the head and tell her to speak english with that sexy french accent. Then make me a baguette because I'm sexist and stereotyping like that.

I speak Swedish. It is probably a somewhat difficult language to learn, but I daresay it's easier than French (which I also speak). We don't have a lot of sex-defined grammar and such, which makes things easier. It's not one of the easiest you could pick, however.

And yes, if you learn Swedish, understanding Norwegian is quite easy, there are only minor grammar and spelling differences that you don't even need to know about in order to understand the language.

Also, I might add that Sweden is a quite nice country if you're considering living here. Our weather is mediocre and our politicians are bloody stupid, but I'd like to see the country that has smart politicians, eh? :P

Yeah, mostly it's the same sentence structure as in English, but not always.

And I speak Swedish of course. Sweden FTW!
