Today was the start of third week of school and it also marked the beginning of my third week of learning Swedish. Is there much use for Swedish in my everyday life? Not at all but I have been interested in Scandinavian languages for three or four years now and this is as good a time as any to learn.
So far I know around 160 Swedish words and can form extremely simple sentences (both questions and statements) in present tense. We are using the book Rivstart A1 + A2 as our textbook and I’m pretty sure we’re going to end up either finish the book or come just short of it by the end of the school year. The book moves quickly but I actually, so far, enjoy the speed at which it moves and I like that there is a fair amount of reading material in the book.
Here’s to hoping that this week goes well!
