Learn Swedish with 12 random stories? Is it really that easy?
Well, probably not the way you think it works.
You won´t learn any grammar here.
But you will get a feeling for the structure of the foreign language.
The course is meant to deepen your language knowledge.
This course is not meant to include all aspects of the foreign language.
I want to encourage you to travel, try Duolingo (the App), and listen and read and watch movies in the foreign language.
Of course travelling always is great.
You can even try my free App (Anton Hager in the Appstore) and create you own, homemade Word-to-Word-translated stories with texts in the foreign language, that specifically interest you.
You will see the progress in a few weeks.
This course, if you can call this book so, shall put it´s benefits on the market for you.
It gives you 12 stories, with whom you will be able to deepen your language knowledge.
To get started, have a look at the table of content.
This book is structured in 12 stories.
Every story is structured in 3 pieces.
1: the English story
2: the Swedish story
3: the Word for Word (WfW) translation from English to Swedish
In addition you find the mp3´s (in the table of content). Open the links, through clicking.
( @Swedish+Swedish slow, @English, @Sentence for Sentence mp3)
Just learn the things you want to do first.
Understanding the language through listening and reading;
Talking through talking with the recordings;
Writing through writing :)
This course is not meant to be a complete course for the foreign language.
I want you to check out other courses as well, like Apps and travelling and other texts and mp3´s.
These 4 Rules shall make it easier for you to learn the language:
1/ Read the English texts and imagine the stories. You might as well listen to the English stories.
2/Listen to the Swedish stories and at the same time read the Word-for-Word translation (WfW) in English.
Therefore you hear the Swedish Version and read the English WfW-Version.
3/ Listen to the Swedish text (mp3´s) in the background. At the same time you can do other stuff, you don´t have to really understand the recordings.
4/Make your own decisions. If you want to talk, talk. If you want to write, write. If you want to understand, listen and read the WfW-translation and listen to the Sentence for Sentence (SfS)-translation.
It is really easy, but that doesn´t mean it goes without work.
