Reading in Swedish / Läsa på svenska

Read in Swedish / Läsa på svenska

Reading is learning. Reading is traveling. I would say that to read is to rest and activate the brain at the same time – depending on what you are reading and what the purpose of it is. / Här är en post som tipsar om att läsa på svenska.

I read books on a tablet. I listen to books. I read books the way I always have – a copy I can hold. I prefer to hold a book, flip through the crispy pages, smell the paper and insert post-its where I find something memorable. I also love a nice cover. I usually read in Swedish or English, but try to read at least a couple of books in German every year too. I think it is a good way to keep up the language and also to learn new words; especially the new, trendier words.

Read in Swedish – samples

Despite my love for the physical book I don’t mind reading texts on a screen. There’s a webpage I use where you can read extracts from books published in Sweden. This is useful and inspiring when you look for something to read in Swedish.

The website is www.provlas.se

Here are a few tips on what to read if you are learning Swedish – children or adults, beginners or advanced, first language or second!

Swedish via Skype

Do you want to learn Swedish but don’t really feel you have the time to go to a class? Perhaps there is not even a class to go to where you are!

Are you learning Swedish but feel you do not get enough quality time and practice in class?

I provide accessible and effective Swedish language lessons via Skype. My sessions are flexible,  personal and individually tailored to help you conquer the language and getting comfortable speaking Swedish.  Via Skype I teach, mentor and inspire you to learn Swedish as well as to improve it; no matter level.

As an individual having experienced crowded schedules in a corporate as well as a stay-at-home mom world I know the value of accessible competent and professional assistance. As an ex-expatriate I also appreciate the value of getting powerful and appropriate language training – including cultural references – to be able to build stronger relationships at the workplace, and to reach a quicker and higher degree of integration in a new society. And who does not want to be able to manage in the local language while on vacation, or just have one country and  a language that has that special place in one’s heart?

You are most probably aware of the many benefits of learning a language.  Here is an article on the subject.
