Svenska med borgmästaren

Swedish with the mayor

On this page the some basic stuff of the Swedish language and some fun stuff of it is explained. There are better places to learn Swedish, but this is the only place with my voice! ;-)

I try to write many example sentences, so that you get a grip of the language, even if you can't get all the details right.

These are the sections:

svenska alfabetet: The Swedish alphapet with examples.

svenska tal mm: Swedish numbers, days and other similar things.

vanliga fraser: Common phrases in Swedish

roliga fraser: Funny phrases in Swedish

en typisk svensk dialog A dialog in Swedish.

svenska kroppsdelar: Bodyparts in Swedish. Listed as an example
of how easy Swedish is if you know English.

svenska verb: Verbs (short)

(Undone) substantiv: Nouns

adjektiv: Adjectives and a little about adverbs

att: The Swedish word "att" ("to (do)" or "that")

andra ord: Other words

urk och bläh: Non-word words!

grattis på födelsedagen: Birthday!

god jul: Christmas-greeting

Helan går: Helan går the most famous Swedish snapssång!

Smurfsången A beautiful Swedish children song.


Swedish Grammar:

Sound to that grammar:

Swedish dictionaries (English, but also Bosnian, Finnish, Greek, Croatian Russian and Spanish):
And if you don't want to practise Swedish while using it:

A really funny and equally useless Swedish-course with MP3s: (Or here: Slay backup )

Simple Swedish - Lustig gör sig lustig (Mr Lustig is being funny)
Teaching the basics in an absurd naive way.

2006-06-25 [Hedda]: Well... I think it's much better to write something that people will remember than to write boring shit like every other book does.

2006-07-03 [Little Red Ridinghood]: ^^ nice!! virkelig.. svensk er et nydelig språk.. jupp jupp.. og det er norsk også! og dansk! og se! vi har en svensk-dansk-norsk wiki også!! wooooow! lurer på om den snille kule greie borgemesteren vår vil sette opp en link til scandinavia united på den vakre språk wikien sin? *hint hint* Verdens sniiiiiiiiiiilleste borgemester..*smiske* =P

2006-07-03 [Hedda]: I don't think that's a releated wiki-page really, but as long as your comments stays here, you'll have the link here ;)

2006-07-05 [Viperess]: Okay after reading and hearing the different links I am ready to attempt to learn. I love the way the Swedish language sounds, even after you have had a bottle of wine. :)

2006-08-20 [m3_di]: Do you pronounce 7 "huj"? I thought it was something like "shju" :S

2006-08-21 [Hedda]: No, 7, is pronounced "sju", just as it's spelled.

Hear the soundfile on svenska tal mm!

2006-08-21 [Hedda]: I get why you might think that though:

"sj" is pronounced in the middle of Russian Ха and Шa (Same as German doch and Stadt). That is: A harder (more in the back) English "sh".

U is not "uj". It's somewhere between Finnish U and Y, or Russian У and Ы, and therefore sounds like that to you. Just pronounce it as a Dutch U ;) 

2006-08-21 [m3_di]: So it's like "Shu/y"? :D

2006-08-22 [Faery]: Damn! I've been in Sweden for over a week and I still can't pronounce correctly, even if I spend entire days listening to people speaking swedish around me! I'll never be able to learn! :'(

2006-08-23 [Hedda]: People have been here for years and can't still pronounce it correctly. But it's good enough if you're close. Just learn a lot of words and you'll get a hang of it.

2007-05-31 @Not logged in user@: My name is Dalia. I just visited your website, which certainly offers references that are an invaluable tool. 

I've just compiled a glossary collection of Swedish-English / English-Swedish dictionaries which I thought you might be interested in sharing with your site visitors. The collection of dictionaries provides clear and precise translations and it is absolutely free of charge.

Basically, "Look up" is a search-box (like Google) but it's focused on both the English and Swedish languages. Here's the link to it .

You may also browse each and every glossary by simply clicking on its title.

Feel free to use it and should you have any feedback, I would be happy to hear from you.

Hope you enjoy the glossary collection and I'd appreciate if you could mention this on your site by including a link.

Kind regards,

2007-05-31 @Not logged in user@:

2007-06-05 [Hedda]: Sorry, @not logged in user@, but I don't find those dictionaries anyway near good.

2007-11-04 [Easterling]: Hmmm.... missing one phrase here: "Skene gate upp å gate ner..."

2007-11-05 [Hedda]: That's not Swedish...

2009-01-08 [Hedda]: I haven't learn to make book-links there yet though. I should check to see if it's cheaper there.

2009-09-18 [Hedda]: Grrr! All the exercises links were broken. Damn people who are destroying the web!
