    Teach Me Svenska

    Having decided to make the move to Sweden in order to make my jump start to someday reside in the United Kingdom later on as a fast track way of immigrating out of the United States in the path of obtaining a European Union citizenship it has come to my attention that learning Svenska will only benefit my transition.

    Yes I've made similar threads in the German or Icelandic forum portions of the website toying with the google language translator but with this thread I'm even more serious in learning especially since it will be widely spoken to where I'm immigrating to.

    I figure I will start with some basic language openings where any observing Swedish speaker can correct me if I should come off incorrectly in my pronounciation of things.

    I gladly would appreciate anybody's participation in all of this.

    I'm from the United States

    Jag är från USA

    Hello, my name is....

    Hej, mitt namn är

    Hello

    Hej

    What is your name?

    Vad är ditt namn?

    What

    Being a native of Landet Mellanmjölk myself, I'll make some corrections if you don't mind:

    Either that, or the more common "Hej, jag heter...."

    What is your name?

    Vad är ditt namn?
    It's "Vad heter du?"


    The

    Den
    Nope. There's no word for "The". Instead, we add an "n" att the end. So, for example, "the computer" would be "datorn" and not "den dator".

    Otherwise, good luck.

    A "n" at the end of each word being addressed by the English word equivalent of "The" ?

    Would, the football be translated into fotbolln?

    [Swedish equivalent of the football...]

    Thing is, we don't use the, die, der, das or whatever it may be. We just change the original word, instead of putting another word infront of it.

    Take the word dog as an example.

    dog = hund

    the dog = hunden



    Or the word car

    car = bil

    the car = bilen




    football = fotboll

    a football = en fotboll

    the football = fotbollen
    A democracy is nothing more than mob rule,
    where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%.

    Interesting and peculiar.

    Would the Swedish word Fotboll amount to Fotbollen?

    Well, you're halfway right:

    The game football is "fotboll".

    The ball itself is "fotbollen".

    EDIT: Whoops, I just saw you figured it out on your own.

    I've been learning Swedish for many months, but I've never managed to find a good website where you can learn it.

    The oral pronunciation is quite important in Swedish IMO. I came in Sweden with some basic written knowledge, but it was almost totally useless there when it came to understand what people said.
    I couldn't even understand when people said "Jag är 'namn'" at the beginning !

    I think the best way to learn it would be to buy books with audio CD included (or PC programs, never tried it so I can't say anything on it), sometimes it's hard to force yourself to read it regularly, but if you're motivated it should be ok.

    Anyway, Sweden is a good choice, you'll enjoy it if you come here

    Oh and about the definite form of nouns, there are words where you put -en at the end, and others that you have to end with -et.
    It depends of the noun and I believe it's quite aleatory (though most of the nouns are -en nouns).

    It's also important if you want to speak with the indefinite form :

    a car would be en bil (bilen for the definite form), whereas a card would be ett kort (kortet for the definite form).

    Apart from the word fotbollen if I was to say the football is over there in the den, would the Swedish equivalent be Fotbollen är borta i den?

    Yes pronounciation of any language along with memorization can be tough however on the google language utility translator there is actually a voice automated speaker literally pronouncing the sound of each word if you initiate it.

    [It certainly makes things much easier....]

    I'm not sure what "the den" is, my English is not the best.

    The football is over there = fotbollen är där borta

    The football is over here = fotbollen är här (borta)

    The football is in the shed = fotbollen är i skjulet

    Here you also see that some words end with "en" while others end with "et". As in "fotboll-en" and "skjul-et". The day I figure out the grammatic rule for when it is "en" and when it is "et", I'll let you know.

    The same thing with the English "a" and "an". We have "en" and "ett".

    a table = ett bord

    the table = bordet



    a dog = en hund

    the dog = hunden
