Introduction to Swedish:
Lesson 5

Alright. Let’s learn more Swedish words:

Swedish for to be is att vara.

Just like in English the words to be and am, are, etc. are different. The good news is, they are a lot less different in Swedish:

Swedish for am, are, is is är.

It happens as if the word att vara was att ä instead ,and you just added that r ending to it. Practice this by imagining that your name is Olof (that’s a common Swedish name). Say:

I am Olof.

Answer: Jag är Olof.
