Swedish

Why Learn Swedish?

Swedish may be overlooked.  Most Swedish people speak good English and the Scandinavian languages do not have such a strong international influence as Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, or Mandarin Chinese for example, but there some good reasons to learn this beautiful language.

The phonetics have a nice flow to them and the spoken language has a system of intonation that makes it sound musical, which cannot be said of most other Indo-European languages. Swedish is relatively simple to learn, as it used to have three grammatical genders like German does, but reduced it to two by lumping masculine and feminine together under "common gender."Also, you only need to memorize one form of the verb for each tense.

Swedish is quite intuitive for the English speaker. Compare these sentences: in Swedish, "Hur kan du säga nej, till en natt med mig?" and then in English, "how can you say no, to a night with me?" They have quite a similar ring to them and sound even more like English than they look on paper.

The Scandinavian languages are Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, and Faroese. Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish are so alike that knowledge of one helps you to understand the other two, so you can quickly acquire three foreign languages for the price of one!
