Colloquial Swedish (Colloquial Series)

I completed the Colloquial Danish course several years ago and found it excellent, so I'm now a fluent speaker.

Colloquial Swedish is a different proposition. It is OK for the seasoned language learner with some existing knowledge but it would be quite daunting for a raw beginner to get to grips with. The grammar coverage is thorough and there are plenty of exercises for practice. The discs are a must if you want any chance of mastering the pronunciation. The speakers do speak far too quickly at the start and many of the texts in the book are not present on the discs. The glossaries at the back are completely inadequate to use the book, so you also need a decent Swedish/English dictionary.

The book is also absolutely full of errors - it clearly wasn't checked properly before publication!!!

4/5 stars

Useful learning tool for Swedish (0/0 people found this helpful)

I used this book to start learning Swedish before moving there; I found that it gave me a very good introduction.

The presentation of the subject material is less childish than other language texts that I have used (including other books in the Colloquial series), and the lesson structure worked well for me.

Oh dear (2/2 people found this helpful)

I was looking for something to take me on from the excellent "Teach Yourself Swedish Conversation" and the title "Colloquial Swedish" suggested this would be what I was looking for - snappy and fast paced. Well, I was wrong. If you like learning languages by listening to long lists of words that have nothing in common except they contain the same consonant this might suit you. Oh yes, and the CD seems to be narrated by John Major. I was asleep before lesson 2.
