Let’s build some sentences in Swedish today! Use this game – Bella Bävers ordlek – to make sentences; silly ones or perfectly normal ones – you decide! Click “spela upp meningen” to hear the result. It’s a children’s game and kids most definitely have a lot of fun playing this. I am sure it can amuse an adult or two too, and you will most likely pick up some new vocabulary while reinforcing how to make simple sentences in Swedish. 🙂
The word game can be found on the Swedish Radio’s website.
Every year Swedish radio channel P1 lets Swedish celebrities from every walks of life (artists, athletes, politicians, business gurus, ministers etc.) host a daily show. These programs are very popular, and topics and music vary a lot. Last week the summer hosts of 2014 were revealed. Listening to the show is a good way to keep up your Swedish as well as to keep up to date with what’s the talk of the town in Sweden.

Do you want to know how a word in a foreign language is pronounced? Or do you want to fine tune your Swedish pronunciation? One way to do it is to take a look at the website of Acapela. This site provides native speaking voices for 30 different languages; often also different local dialects as well as several voices to chose from. I tried Swedish and I think it works well. You just type in/paste the word or text you want to hear. So go ahead and listen to the pronunciation in Swedish of that special word you are wondering about or need to practice a bit more.
