Introduction to Swedish:
Lesson 10

Swedish for because is eftersom.

Now for the purposes of our next exampl,e keep in mind that if you have a sentence with two connected "inte *(some verb)" combinations in it, the second inte gets pulled before the verb rather than after it, so you will be saying inte är instead of ]är inte] in the last part of the sentence.
