imperfectutopia  asked:

How old are you? And do you have any tips for anyone wanting to learn Swedish?

(I’m 18 but I saw that you saw that)

Hmm, unfortunately not as I haven’t learnt it myself (as it is my native language) but I’d recommend listening to a lot of things? Like news or music. And pronunciation (practice retroflex, sj-sounds, short/long vowel etc). 

I have a few resources on my blog, my vocabulary lists (easterperiod, breakfast), Svenska med Idz that is a video series where I speak Swedish about random subjects and make a small vocabulary list to go with it (all videos, all posts) and my TV, movies and music posts (Swedish TVSwedish moviesSwedish music). Also if you search #swedish #svenska or #swedish resources on my blog I have some more reblogged material there! And also, don’t hesitate to ask me if you want any help with something more or if you want to practice or something! 

I changed my study space (removed to shelfs) and I’m SO happy with it !!

I challenged myself by deciding to take a Swedish B2 Language Examination in November. I’m nowhere near that level on all fronts, but I’m sure I’ll make it if I work reeeeally hard :)))  


Oh and yes.

That’s a tangerine tree :DDDDD
