Introduction to Swedish: 40

Nice! Our last question word is also this:

Swedish for how is hur.

If you still recall, the Swedish word for to do was att göra. How would you say:

  1. Literally: "how want you do it?" Remember the double "l" in "vill".
  2. Remember that this is literally "how have you it?" The word "how" was "hur".
  3. This is "I have it good, thanks".
  4. You are saying "have it so good", and using the word "bra" instead of "god". The imperative word for "have" is only two letters long, and comes from the infinitive form.
  5. Do you remember that "hi" was "hej"? Also, you are asking "how have you it?" (Remember that "how" was "hur".)
  6. You are saying "I have it good, thanks".
  7. The same word order as in English. "From" was "från", and where was "var".
  8. Sweden was "Sverige".
  9. Literally: "No, I speak not English."
  10. This sounds similar to "whatfor?"
  11. Your car comes with a bill, remember?
  12. Be careful to use "en" and "et" where appropriate.
  13. You will be saying "the car", thus add the right article to end the word.
  14. Use the word "vara" for "be". Be careful as to whether you use "det" or "den".
  15. This is, remember, literally "have it so good". Use the word "bra" for "good", and "så" for so.
