The official language of Sweden is Swedish. It is very similar to Danish and Norwegian, especially in written form.
(Remember the hit Scandinavian TV series featuring Danish and Swedish police cooperating on a murder enquiry?
The lead detectives could more or less understand each other when speaking their respective languages)
Its grammar and syntax are very similar to English and many Swedish words are easily recognizable by English speakers (ombudsman, orienteering, tungsten, moped and smorgasboard, for example). So naturally, Swedish is an easier language than some others to learn for English speakers.
Pronunciation may be a bit tricky at first, due to the unfamiliar vowel sounds, so a beginner would benefit from having a native Swedish teacher who could help the student to enunciate the sounds more correctly.
Conversation Piece offers a wide variety of Swedish language training options that can be tailored to your own particular needs and requirements:
One-to-one with a Swedish trainer
You and your partner learning Swedish together
You and a small group of friends taking Swedish lessons together.
Conversation Piece can arrange for a Swedish teacher to come to your preferred location (your home, your office etc.).
