5/5 stars

Swedish Language (0/0 people found this helpful)

This book is very clearly written. If you already know about grammar you may wish to skip the explanations, but if you don't you will find them useful. One particular strength of this book is that it allows for forgetting and artfully sneaks in revision as it goes along.

One problem will always be pronunciation, where a book without a CD will be at a disadvantage compared to a book which includes one. So, though the authors do what they can, supplementing this book with listening to Swedish language would be advised.

There may be better books on this subject, though I find that hard to believe. I'm sure there won't be a better one for the asking price.

Good but very in depth (0/0 people found this helpful)

The book is good and points out all of the major rules for learning Swedish. The book focuses on comparisons between English & Swedish which is very good. It is however more in depth than some other books out there, writing about areas of language that you don't need to know. In my view this could have been left out. Other than that it is a good book, I would have just liked it to stick to teaching more, instead of background knowledge.

Excellent book (3/3 people found this helpful)

My teacher recommended this book to complement our textbook. It has really helped me to make progress. As with all languages,Swedish has its different grammatical stuctures and these are clearly and comprehensively explained.pointing out in great detail how the Swedish form differs fom Engish. I have not seen a Swedish textbook which does this.Another strength is that at the same time Engish grammar is explained fully. For example,no assumptions are made,say about the reader,understanding what an "adverbial clause" is,in the first place. This is paticularly helpful for readers,who have not already learnt another foreign language,where these general concepts of grammar are already very familiar.
