Introduction to Swedish: 45

This ends our learning for now. Let’s now have a simple Swedish conversation to test our knowledge. Imagine a Swedish car driver is at his job interview. Use Hej! for hi/hey/hello, and Sverige for Sweden:

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