In my previous post I promised to provide links to instructions for Christmas craft in Swedish. Why? Because it is fun, and because it is a way for you to activate both brain hemispheres when learning the Swedish language, which is beneficial for your acquisition hereof.
I practiced this method myself yesterday when I tried to fold a small star from an instruction in German. I did not succeed in making the star but I did learn a new German word – which I now have a visual of in my head; working on different sections of paper ribbons across one another. I tried to fold it anew this morning from a Swedish video but have to say I did not manage that one either on the first go :).
So, which Christmas craft will you do first? Below you find three suggestions. How about sending me a pic of your master piece when you are done? I will happily put it in my FB timeline.
If you go here you will learn how to make a “smällkaramell” (see photo above) in Swedish. Sveriges Radio is providing the written instruction, with illustrations.
Below is a link to Barnens bokklubb, who provides a pdf for the task of folding a traditional paper heart. Yes I would like to make a heart – show me the instruction in Swedish! Pdf.
Here is a link to Arla’s video on how to make a paper star. Video; for you to practice your listening skills.
Good luck! Lycka till!
